I Receive ALL of Life with Thanksgiving –
I have gratitude for EVERYTHING
that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment.
I give thanks for the joys and the sufferings,
the moments of peace and the flashes of anger,
the compassion and the indifference,
the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear.
I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie
It takes a very mature person to be thankful for ALL of life.
I won’t challenge us all to immediately become thankful for everything, but maybe we could take a step in that direction.
As you think about what you are thankful for this year, challenge yourself to go beyond your usual answers.
Family, friends, faith, home, etc. are all great and worthy of our thanks, but let’s add to the list this year.
Maybe even find a challenge or struggle to be thankful for.
Make it a great day.
