I’m often cognizant of the “big” blessings in my life – those “things” (for lack of a better term) that He has obviously blessed me with: a great job, supportive friends, a reliable car, adorable cats, a loving family, and sweet tea.
And yet I frequently forget to give thanks for those seemingly simple blessings that I enjoy each and every day:
The ability to see, hear, taste, touch, and smell
Hot meals readily available
Clothes – let alone an overabundance of shoes
Heat and electricity
And so, as I feast on an overabundance of food, enjoy the presence of family and friends, and cheer on the Colts this Thanksgiving weekend, I plan on making a conscious effort to be more mindful of just how incredibly blessed (and yet totally undeserving) I am.
“O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!” -Psalm 30:12
