Good Morning! It’s Thankful Thursday!
And I’m as thankful as ever. How about you? Still hangin' with me and stayin' thankful? I hope so!
Earlier this week I was reminded of a quote that says - Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.
Thankfulness is the same. It doesn’t simply happen to us. We have to choose to be thankful. And we have to keep choosing it every day.
Choosing to be thankful for the ordinary-
A comfortable home
Choosing to be thankful for the extraordinary-
A beautifully brilliant sunrise over the ocean
Fresh morning air that smells like the dew
Clean, cool water on a hot summer day
Morning coffee, just the way you like it
Great family members who love you unconditionally
Good friends who share some of the best laughs and greatest adventures of your life
A warm, comfortable home filled with all the people that you love most
Puppy kisses from your favorite fur-babies
Choosing to see the ordinary as extraordinary.
Choosing to be thankful.
Years ago, I traveled for work. A lot. Like I amassed over 1 million miles, a lot. That time away from home forever changed the ordinary things I am most thankful for everyday. And that thankfulness makes me see what many may consider ordinary things as extraordinary. From the sunrise to the coffee. I am so very thankful.
What are you most thankful today?
