For This I Am Grateful

"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I woke up this morning and I said thank you.  I didn't sleep too good last night, but I said thank you.  I have some problems that I don't yet have solutions for, but I said thank you.  I don't know how everything's going to work out, but I said thank you.  I had some friends who walked away, but I said thank you.  I had some plans that didn't go my way, but I said thank you.

Thank you God.  Thank you Life.  Thank you Providence, for the chance to see another day and all of its possibilities.  Thank you that all of my loved ones are safe and accounted for; this isn't the case for everyone.  Thank you for food to eat, clothes to wear, heat for the brutally cold Boston winter nights.  Yes, for all this and so much more than I have time to mention I am grateful.  Thank you!  Thank you!! Thank you!!! In everything I will give thanks.

Gratitude, simple daily gratitude is enough to turn your whole life around. 

Following the Way,
