thanksgiving.

happy thanksgiving you all!
do you know what the definition of thanksgiving is?
have you looked it up?
i got a big ol' smile when i saw it..
here it is..
t h a n k s g i v i n g : the act of giving thanks; grateful acknowledgement of benefits or favor, especially to god.

did you see that? especially to god.
isn't that true? isn't he the one that deserves all our thanks?
everything we have.. is god's. he has blessed us beyond measure to give these things to us.
i don't know about you.. but i take almost everything in life for granted.
i don't thank the lord enough for what i do have.
or don't.
i honestly don't even feel like i have given him enough thanks this month like what i'm supposed to be doing.
but today i reflect and remember.
i am thankful for the gift of life [which i will be celebrating another year on monday!!].
i am thankful for such a loving, caring, thoughtful husband. yes there are times when we disagree and fight, but i am so incredibly thankful to have him be the one i'm fighting and disagreeing with!
i am thankful for food in my tummy, clothes on my back, and a roof over my head. how amazing is it to know that we don't have to worry about where our next meal will come from, or where we will lay our heads down at night.
i am thankful for my job, even though there are many times i don't want to get up, make the long drive in and deal with cranky clients - but i do and i am thankful.
i am thankful for healthy family and friends who are here to support me and love me through all my mess ups.
i am thankful.
i am blessed.
