3: a public acknowledgment or celebration of divine goodness
2: a prayer expressing gratitude
I have a lot to be thankful for these days. A wonderful family, a loving husband, a beautiful child, an understanding support system, a slightly braindead but still cute dog, food on the table, a roof over our heads...the list is unending, really.
And I still struggle to remember this on a daily basis. I get caught up in the dishes, and the laundry and the oh-my-gosh did you really just spill your juice again? and I forget to say a prayer of thanks. I don't write about it here, but my childhood had some really rough patches, and I know that I am so blessed to have ended up where I am today. But do I remember to thank God? Rarely. (I deleted that sentence twice, because I don't really want to be honest, but I know that I need to be.)
"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever." Psalm 107:1
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, I hope that you are remembering your blessings, no matter how small or large they may be.
