Thanksgiving in May?


About 10 years ago, I started thanking God for stuff before asking for stuff. I felt bad that I'd jump right into my daily quiet time with a list of "gimme's." Admittedly, it's sometimes hard to find thanks--like days when I wake up sad or fearful. But it's on those days that I need to give thanks all the more. Here's some things I've thanked God for this month in May: 1) the personal lessons God is teaching me regarding courage 2) that I haven't been in the hospital in over 2 years for my lungs 3) my better whole, Raul, & my 2 healthy boys 4) Church by the Glades. "Thanks" is good for Thanksgiving, but giving thanks shouldn't be reserved for it. What's something you're thankful for today? This day in May?
