Thursday Thankful List

We made it to Thursday! This week has been a lot busier than normal work weeks, but it definitely made the time fly a little bit faster. I’m looking forward to a slow and lazy weekend. I actually have a few home decorating ideas up my sleeve – planning on heading to the hardware store today or tomorrow!

Thinking about thankfulness and gratitude today, I want to encourage you to not view certain situations, experience and people in your life as your right. It is a divine privilege, a gift. Cynthia Ozick’s words are resonating my head: “We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.” We quite often forget to be thankful for things that are the most important. Our bodies, the people in our life who love us unconditionally, our five senses, the ability to think and act and live, the weather, the opportunity to experience a new day. Today, show gratitude for things that mean the most!

Here’s a short list of things I’m thankful for today! I’d love to hear what YOU are thankful for; share in the comments or tweet me @luckyandi
