Thanksgiving tends to make people focus on being thankful for the things they have in their lives.  People even take the whole month of November to bgratefule thankful for their blessings.  I have made this a part of my everyday life.  When I wake up in the morning I take two minutes to write down at least one thing I am thankful for and I try not to duplicate anything on the list.  A friend gave me a jar for me to put all I am grateful for in to visually see all I should be thankful for.  It was meant to write one thing on a piece of scrap paper, fold it up and place it in the jar and watch them add up.  I took it another way.  I write on a 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheet of paper, written in two columns on both sides of the
paper…all the things I am thankful for.  Then I roll the paper up and place it in the jar.  The pages have added up over time.  Even on my bad days I am able to come up with something to be thankful for.  It has become a healthy habit for me to get through the days.  I can refocus and remember that even though a lot of bad shit has happened to me in the past couple of years that I still have so much.  Even more than one person deserves.  I am thankful for everyone who has been there for me.  I am thankful for all God has given me.  I am thankful for the little things in the world.  I am thankful to be able to write this.  And I am thankful to you for reading this. There is always something to be thankful for.  Happy Thanksgiving!
