My Facebook news feed has been blowing up with people giving a daily post of what they are thankful for.
It’s definitely a healthy thing to do. Even when there are times if I get frustrated or irritated with a person, situation, or circumstance, if I pull back for more than five seconds and look at the big picture, one word comes to mind, blessed.
Here are some of the reasons for that:
My wife Katelyn, who I’m thankful to have by my side during this wild ride called life. It really is amazing to have a spouse who shares core values with you and can buy into the idea that we are a team with a similar vision and mission. We also just enjoyed a great Thanksgiving break with both our families. I do not use this word often but that time was, well, precious. I am also thankful for having a purpose in life, food, too many clothes, a place to call home (temporarily), scholarships, overall health, jobs, excitement of meeting new friends and reconnecting with previous ones, no pressure to be perfect, hope for eternity, and baseball.
On a random note, something else we are thankful for is that we have discovered jumbo marshmallows that make jumbo s’mores like the one below possible!
