Things to be Thankful For

This week's blog focuses on things we should all be thankful for.

This week is provides an opportunity for us to express our gratitude for the many blessings we have in our lives. I am not going to bore with my personal list of things I am thankful but rather try to bring up things we all take for granted and should be thankful for. Before I get into that, I must share what I am most thankful for. I am thankful for my beautiful wife, her continued support, our years and memories spent together, and that she said “yes” almost five years ago. I am thankful for my amazing son; he is such a wonderful gift. Everyday he learns something new and it’s such a blessing to be in his life. I am also extremely grateful for my family, my health, and my career.

A large percentage of Americans wake up every day dreading going into work. I am not one of those people. I love what I do. During these tough economic times, if you are fortunate enough to have a steady job, think of those who are out of work. I am sure someone who is unemployed and has a family to feed would gladly take your job. So be thankful and most importantly, do your job to the best of your ability. Remember that no matter what happens, there is always someone somewhere else who has it worse than you. I struggle with that concept sometimes, but when I pause to reflect, it really puts things into perspective for me.
