I am thankful for all the things we as people seem to take for granted, starting with our health and strength. There are 5 specific things I am extremely thankful for. These 5 things are gifts from God and, I am sincerely thankful that I can see, hear, touch/feel, taste, and smell.
I am very thankful that I can wake up each morning and see the beauty of God’s creations. I further realize that if clean my eyeglasses I can see even better. Thank you, God for ophthalmologists.
I am thankful to be able to hear the sounds of nature and the ordinary everyday sounds of life, especially laughter.
I am thankful that I remain on this side of the dirt and I’m not buried down under it. I can feel this overwhelming Texas heat and be grateful for the sense of feeling.
I am thankful to be able to taste the many wonderful foods and beverages God allows us to provide for ourselves.
I am thankful that I am able to smell freshly cut grass, the sweet fragrance of beautiful flowers and fruits, and the awesome pleasantness of earth after the rain. Yesterday I marveled at the mouth-watering aroma of perfectly seasoned chicken breasts sautéing on the stove.
Last night I snuggled in bed next to a sweet-smelling sleeping baby Jace. I thank God I am able to smell Jace’s sweetness, gaze upon his peaceful sleeping body and, know that I am truly blessed!
Thank you God for all your loving blessings!
