Do we really take the time we should to reflect on the things that we are thankful for? I am thankful for the big things - a loving family, good health and a job in this tough economy but I also want to focus on the little things that we often overlook. I hope you will join me in accentuating the positive.
I am especially thankful that today is Thursday because as of 4:30 this afternoon - I am on a much needed vacation!
I am thankful that I have all of the details finalized for the September and October meetings of a professional association that I am president of.
I am thankful that I am so caught up at work. I won't have any work issues to worry about while I am gone next week.
I am thankful that my boss was on vacation this past week. It made my week go much easier without him around to bug me.
I am thankful that I have a husband that I can trust and a relationship that is drama-free. Some of my co-workers are in relationships that are like train wrecks.
I am very thankful that my son has given me very little cause for worry. I know several other parents who can't say that.
I am thankful that I can provide my son with a stable home life where he doesn't have to worry about being safe or being homeless. We know other kids who aren't so fortunate.
I am thankful that I have such wonderful memories of growing up. The comment I made about accentuating the positive reminds me that my Dad used to sing that song to me when we went camping. It was how he woke us kids up.
This is my last post before vacation. I do not know if I will have an opportunity to post while on vacation so, in case I don't, have a great 8 days!
What is positive in your life today?
Here's to Thankful Thursdays!
