I was reading a friends post on Facebook the other day and was very impressed at their gratitude! They were simply expressing thankfulness to God for some of the simple and often taken for granted things in our lives. I thought it might be a good idea for all of us to make ourselves take a little bit of time to think about what we are thankful for.
Every now and then when my girls start to get a little selfish or when they get a little to full of themselves, then I will encourage them to sit down with a pen and piece of paper and make a “Thankfulness List”, in which they list every single thing they can think of that they have to be thankful for. I really make them think about everything, especially the small things.
When we actually take the time to stop and be thankful, it changes everything! Take a little time today to think about what you have to be thankful for and then in some way share your thankfulness with the rest of the world! You will be glad you did!
