The SUO challenge blog theme this week is a theme of THANKS or THANKFULNESS. As humans, we don’t naturally foster a heart of thankfulness, do we?  Or am I the only one who finds it much easier to complain than to remember all I have to be thankful for?  First of all, Thank you Lord for family, for a loving husband and for four children and their wonderful spouses who all make me so proud when I see the adults they have grown into – but really Lord, thanks for THAT too, because without you, where would they be?  Where would we all be?  Thank you for GRANDCHILDREN, oh yes…the biggest thank you EVER for GRANDCHILDREN. Thank you for my mom and my stepmom who live close enough to share our lives with us.   Thank you for JOBS, and our HOME, and a huge one, our HEALTH.   How much do we take our HEALTH for granted??  Thank you for extended family (my sister Tammy!!)  and for friends who are like family, thank you for the gift of your salvation…. thank you for dying on a cross for my SINS.  If we REALLY wrapped our heads around BEING THANKFUL….all day long, every day, even thankful for trials and testing…..our lives would be so much happier.  I’m gonna try to go a full day without complaining about anything or anyone.  Tomorrow.  I’m gonna do it.  I’m gonna try really hard to be thankful all day – every day…I have so much to be thankful for!!  That’s all, that’s it, I’m just gonna try to be a person who is thankful….that’s all, that’s it!!  Until next time….Karen
