Giving Thanks

This week I have been thinking about what I am most thankful for at this time of my life. Each time I got in my car to drive to work or to visit a patient, I contemplated the thing of person or philosophy or what ever that meant the most to me. It was easy to say God or family of life or any other thing. Yet each thing can be preempted by something else. How can I find one thing that I am most thankful for when I have so much? So, here is my list of things I am thankful for. It is a partial list and in no particular order.

The grace and mercy of God. This is the reason I live. This is the reason I know why I am here and where I am going.

My Soul Mate. I don’t know that God puts just one person on earth for each of us to be our soul mate. If He does, I am so grateful that I found mine.

My family. Each member of my family offers a different piece for which to be grateful.

God’s Creation. The change of seasons, the glorious vistas, the little details—all are part of an amazing world in which we live.
