Everyday is a day of thanksgiving. Yes, everyday is a day of thanksgiving and if you don’t have a reason to be thankful let me give you a few.. You’re walking on top of the dirt, you woke up and not only did you wake up but you have sight because you’re reading this, you have your right mind because you understand this, you have the activity of your limbs because you logged into Facebook, you’re blessed because you’re either reading this from a phone, computer, iPad etc., so yes you have a reason to make everyday a day of thanksgiving.
Oh, it’s not enough? Then let me make this thang personal. I woke up this morning with all my family well and with everything that I had on yesterday only better. I still got grandma who could have been gone after losing her only husband of 66 years. I still got my momma when someone’s has been gone for years, I still got my God given parents (my inlaws) who treat me like their own; I still got my husband and someone buried theirs yesterday, I still got my children and someone is saying a final goodbye to theirs; I still got all my sisters when someone lost theirs to breast cancer; I still got all my brothers and someone lost theirs to drugs; I still got all my aunts and uncles and someone has lost theirs to a senseless crime; I still got all my cousins and all my friends after somebody has lost theirs to gossiping! Yes see, everyday is a day of thanksgiving for me. I won’t sit on my praise because God has been too good. Even when I’m still fresh in my grief over granddaddy, I’m still thankful because he could still be here suffering. Baby, you better get a thankful attitude of gratitude because the things you take for granted can be easily taken from you and granted to somebody else!
