The season of thankfulness

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on November 23, 2007

It is a time for thankfulness said out loud instead of silent prayer. 

I’m thankful for my family, friends and love. 

I’m thankful for health and happiness. 

I’m thankful for a roof over my head, clothes on my back and food to sustain me and my loved ones. 

I’m thankful for hot and cold running water that comes instantaneously into a warm home and electricity. 

I’m thankful that there are people who service my house by taking trash to the dump or recycle for us. 

I’m thankful that I live in a relatively safe location with relatively quiet neighbors. 

I am thankful for transportation systems, freedom of movement and the technology that took us to the moon and made so much of our modern life possible.

I’m thankful that I know to be thankful and I know I’m here and get to enjoy this wonderful life.
