It's almost Thanksgiving time, and we all have much to be thankful for. We are truly blessed.
For me, I am grateful for many things. But I am especially grateful every morning. It may sound crazy, but just waking up - just opening my eyes and staring at the ceiling, I realize I have been given another day. That means another chance to go to work. I get another chance to exercise. I get another chance to see the sun rise and the sunshine. I get another chance to go out and walk and play with my dogs.
Some people will say that's nothing. But I'm grateful for that each and every day. I think it's more than a lot of people can say. It's truly a blessing.
Sure, we all have our aches and pains. It comes with the territory. But if you have your health, you are truly blessed.
Some people will say it sounds corny. Some will say it sounds crazy, but not to me. I don't think so. I think it's gratitude, and I am grateful for it every single day.
There comes a point in life where you have to be. There is so much sadness around us in the world these days, that each day we have is a gift. I truly believe that. And I am grateful for that gift each and every day, whether it's Thanksgiving or not.
I hope to be able to say that for many more days to come. I hope to continue to look up at the ceiling and count my blessings for they are many. I'm here. I'm healthy and I'm alive. And for that I am very grateful.
