It seems like every morning, lately, is filled with terrible news or another explosion somewhere. It breaks my heart.
This Thursday I am thankful for:
*Firefighters, Policemen, Rescue workers. I am so thankful we have such brave and courageous men and women risking their own lives and safety just to help someone else.
*Clean water. I know when there are natural disasters bottled water is very high on the list of things needed. I am so grateful we live in a country where clean water is almost ALWAYS available.
* Government. Whether or not I agree with the policies or who is in charge. I am free to speak my mind, believe in any religion, live without a covering, and feel safe. I am so thankful to wake up to peace every morning, and not streets full or riots or car bombs.
*Media. Most of the time the news is filled with garbage. Seriously. But lately I have been so thankful for the news coverage on the Boston Bombers. Because of the media we were able to pass around photos and find the suspects.
*I am so grateful for my body and my health. Every morning I wake up and climb right out of bed. I don't hesitate as to whether or not my legs will fail me.
*Shoes. I don't mean stilettos and sandals. Sneakers. I don't have to worry about infections from walking around barefoot. I don't have to worry about frostbite or burns. I am so thankful I have been blessed to live in a country where shoes are not a rare item.
What are you thankful for?
