Thankful

I have so much to be thankful for it isn't even fair. Yes, my life is far from perfect, but it also is far better than most. As Americans we are some of the luckiest in the world. We don't live in a nation where we constantly have to worry about a bomb falling in our neighborhood over night. We don't have to worry about a bloody civil war tearing apart our government. We don't have to worry about disease or famine.

It is so easy to concentrate on the negatives life throws your way. I'll be the first to admit I'm often bad about over looking the good in my life and only seeing the bad. The past month or so I've really been working on appreciating all that I have in my life, and I've honestly been happier. Even the worst parts of my life are better than some people's best.

So this holiday while I'm certainly thankful for my loving family and a warm home with the best corn casserole you could ever hope to eat plenty to eat, I am mostly incredibly grateful for the life I've been blessed with. As my mother always tells me, "God could have made you a tree, but He decided instead to make you an American."
