All of this colder-than-normal weather has made me realize how incredibly fortunate I am.  I have a warm house, food, plenty of clothes, a big coat, a car with heat… I have all that I need and a lot of creature comforts, all of which I take for granted more than I should.  In all honesty, my pets have a better life than some people in the world. 

In this crazy world, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the stuff that is wrong, but maybe today we should take a few minutes out of our day that we would be goofing around on Facebook or playing Solitaire on our phone and make a list of the GOOD things in our lives.  The blessings.  The creature comforts.  The basic needs that we take for granted. 

For what are you thankful today?
