What Are You Thankful For?

Thanksgiving is coming up, and many people are counting their blessings.  Some users on Facebook and other social media sites are even doing the Thanksgiving 30 day challenge in which each participate posts something he or she is thankful every day of November.  Can you come up with 30 different things you’re thankful for?  It’s harder than you might think!  But here are some of the things we’re extremely grateful for.

Family – mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, grandparents, uncles, aunts…all family members in all shapes and sizes!

As-close-as-family – most families have that one incredibly close family friend who is practically a member of the family.

Friends – these are the people who always have your back, who help you through the horrible times and celebrate with you during the good times.  While Thanksgiving is often associated with the big family dinner, take time to be thankful for your close friends, too.

Pets – sometimes, we like them better than people!  Our dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, even our fish enrich our lives and bring us joy.

Employment – with the economy what it has been for the past few years, many of us are very thankful we have a steady job we love.

Our homes – likewise, we’re very thankful we have safe, comfortable places to live, especially as the weather gets colder.

Our freedoms – we hear of many people being oppressed in the news, making us all thankful of having the freedoms we do.

Our health – if you’ve had or are currently dealing with a life-changing illness, you know how easy it is to take your health for granted.  Be grateful for your heath if you are well.  For those who are dealing with a health issue, be thankful for the many professionals who can help and the many friends and family who are there for support.

Finally, we’re thankful for the beautiful world around us and the many things we have.  From those bright, cheery days and snuggling up and reading a good book to playing sports and eating a great meal, we’re thankful for everything we’ve been given and those we have around us to enjoy it all with.
