Over the weekend, I was watching an episode of "Dexter" and at one point they were showing a family sitting down enjoying their Thanksgiving meal and they had to individually say what they were thankful for. All of their answers sounded very generic.
What I mean by that is: thankful for my health, thankful for my home , thankful for my family, thankful for my husband.....and so on.

What exactly does being thankful mean?

If you're thankful for your family, does this mean you should be grateful for who they are, faults and all ?

If you're thankful for your health, does that mean you should respect your body and exercise, eat well, not drink too much ??

If you're thankful for your home, does that mean you should always be on time paying property taxes, make sure the house is clean and well kept?

I believe that when someone is truly thankful, it shows in their actions.
And so I wonder, what are you seriously thankful for?

I'm thankful for my kids and for my husband.

Happy Thanksgiving !

  1. I am thankful for my family and my health.

    Check out a book called "The Shack" if you haven't already heard of it. I recently read it and it indirectly made me realize everything that I'm thankful for.

    P.S. It's good to see you blogging semi-regularly again...
