WordPress Daily Prompt – Thank You: The internet is full of rants. Help tip the balance: today, simply be thankful for something (or someone).
It was as if this prompt above was sent out just for me.
Maybe because it’s easy for most of us to be ungrateful, but who wouldn’t be if all they had to look forward to was a stressful job with difficult co-workers, family members and kids who seemingly go out of their way to challenge us, and bills which multiply exponentially every day? And let’s not even talk about having to sit in long lines of traffic to and from work five days a week …
All of the above may be true, but as I listen closely to the news from around the world, I am thankful that this little space in the Caribbean where I live is generally peaceful, and a place where people can live their lives without the fear of terrorism or chemical warfare.
As my friends in far away lands begin to comment on experiencing “much cooler weather” I am thankful that my “rock” is devoid of harsh winters, enabling me to enjoy beautiful beaches with golden sand all year round.
Most important of all though, I am thankful that God has blessed me with a job to pay my bills, a car to get me to and fro, a home of my own; and the icing on my blessing cake: the love of a truly wonderful son, super fab family (well, most of the time anyway) and some really great friends.
So is my life perfect? Certainly not! Yet there is definitely reason to say: Thank you Lord for blessing me with so much goodness! So what are you thankful for today? I am sure if you think hard enough, you can do like me and come up with something.
