Let's Take a Moment to Be Thankful
by Doe Zantamata
For every accident that never happened,
For every grave illness that was not caught,
For every tornado that never formed, And every mean word withheld when we fought.
We can only see what's right in front of us,
And be thankful for all we've got,
But to really, truly embrace gratitude,
We have to also remember
To be thankful
For every "never", "didn't", and "not".
I am totally grateful for having three days off during Thanksgiving. I will have my grandbabies, I will spend time with extended family, and I will also make time to just to.....nothing. So my mind can be on vacation, my spirit be rejuvenated, and my soul remember how to breathe easily and calmly.
I hope each of you take some time this Thanksgiving to be grateful for....you. For every good decision that brought you peace of mind, for every bad decision that taught you a lesson. For all your courage when things got rough, for all your grace when life gave you struggles. For your spirit that keeps you trying, for your heart that continues to love.
Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you!! Even the silent ones who only read, the lost ones who feel alone, the happy ones who are doing well. I wish you all the good life has to offer and the wisdom to see it when it appears Continue your quit journeys with strength, focus, and gratitude.
