give thanks.

yes, i am looking forward to the turkey and the stuffing and the cranberry sauce and my entire family bustling around munching on leftovers until 11pm.

but, why is it that we can only be outwardly thankful on the fourth thursday of november? beats me.

so yesterday i started a thankful journal. a simple list of all of the things i realize i’m thankful for. things i’m thankful for either for happening, for not happening, for having or for not having. people i’m thankful for knowing. people i’m thankful for being a part of my life. smells, sights and sounds i am thankful for being able to experience. i’m learning to give thanks. FOR EVERYTHING.

and here’s one reason why:

[be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. if you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.] -oprah winfrey

so what do you think, be thankful with me?
