5 Reasons to be Thankful

5 Reasons to Be Thankful

As I head to New York to sit at my mother-in-law’s wonderful Thanksgiving table, I can’t help but thinking of Ms. Linett Wills, one of the mothers who raised me. Although we had little material things and couldn’t afford a feast for the holidays, she thanked God daily for her blessings. Although she passed away eight years ago, she is always in my heart and I try to live my life in accordance with her teachings.  She always gave thanks everyday be saying to God, “thanks for waking me up this morning and starting me on my way.”   This thanksgiving season, I echo her sentiments and I am blessed to be able to add a few more to her list.

1. Happy and healthy kids
2. Wonderful friends that are just like family.
3. A job in these tough economic times.
4. The ability to have a positive outlook on life.
5. The Gift of God.

What are you thankful for this year?
