I am taking the day off from blogging. In anticipation of this, I put together this list of things I am thankful for and scheduling it to post.
At home we have been going through the “My ABC’s of Thanksgiving” book. In the beginning I didn’t think this would be too hard as we all have so many things to be thankful for. It has actually turned out to be a bit harder than I thought. What an eye-opener. I decided to also do this, but in an adult way – on a blog.
A – Apples
B – Bed
C – (reliable) Car
D – Dinning room table
E – Eyesight
F – Forgiveness
G – God, Good food
H – Health, Hard working Husband
I – Ice skraper
J – Jumping on a trampoline
K – Knowing where we will sleep tonight
L – Laughter
M – Medical Care
N – New mornings
O – Open windows on a sunny Spring day after a long Winter
P – Popcorn while watching movies
Q – Quality time with family
R – Refridgerator with food in it
S – Swimming pools (indoor) open in the winter
T – Typing skills
U – Umbrella on a rainy day
V – Velvety soft blankets
W – Warm blankets
X – Xenodochy (the word of the day. Do you know what it means?)
Y – Yogurt
Z – Zoos
After this excercise I realized that I really should start keeping track of what I’m thankful for. Making this list, well, all the things seemed so not … meaningful. Maybe it was because I was limiting myself to the alphabet rather than just listing itmes out. Either way there are a lot of things I have to be thankful for, and of that I am sure.
Now, I greatly encourage you to get off this computer (said with love) and go spend time with your family or community. If you don’t have one, or feel like you don’t, then I encourage you to put on your shoes and go to a local nursing home or hospital. They would be delighted to see you.
