Friday Favorites-Giving Thanks

Hello, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. For today’s Friday Favorites post, no clothes, accessories, scenery, or other pics. I just want to share a few things I am thankful for.

1)Good health. After watching several loved ones’ health decline, I am that much more grateful for the gift of being healthy. Sure, once you start to get older there are aches and pains here and there, but I am able-bodied, take no medication, and rarely have to see a doctor outside of checkups. I can walk, run, hike, and do all the things I enjoy, which is truly a gift from God. I am thankful for the continued good health of other loved ones as well, and don’t take it for granted.

2)Family. I don’t live near my family, so I don’t see them very often, but I know they are there if I need them and will always have my back.

3)My wonderful husband. He takes such good care of me and has helped us build a solid, happy life together. I wouldn’t trade him for the world.

4)My dog. All our dogs have been gifts from God and their unconditional love is something you can’t get anywhere else. Our current dog, Harrison, showed up in our life right when we needed him the most, and he is an amazing source of comfort when times are tough.

5)The comforts of life. I don’t mean this in a materialistic way. But I am so thankful to have a sturdy roof over my head, plenty of food to eat, electricity, running water, heat and A/C, and clothes to keep me warm or cool. So many people don’t have these things, and they are the things I find myself taking for granted the most.

This post could have been pages and pages long, as I am so fortunate and blessed. Our God is so good, to bless someone like me in so many ways. I try everyday to consciously be more thankful, but I get caught up in my own thoughts and sometimes forget to have a grateful attitude.

I hope you take a few minutes over this Thanksgiving weekend to think about what you are thankful for. Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for visiting!
