Thankful?

Man, I didn't realize this would be so hard! I can think of tons of things I enjoy, am I thankful for them? I am thankful that I can walk, see and hear, and have a sound mind. I enjoy my hobbies and craft-making but am I thankful for them? Sometimes not. Sometimes I wish I could just give all my yarn and fabric away and start on something else. What, I don't know. I am THANKFUL that I can even think about this sort of thing and start to put those activities into their proper place within my life. I am thankful for fate, which drops things into my lap that make me think, specifically in this case, a book I found at a garage sale or goodwill or someplace called 30 Days to a Simpler Life by Connie Cox and Cris Evatt. It has been a godsend. Just about 2 months ago our living room looked like, THIS. We whipped it into SHAPE and for the most part it has stayed that way, now that is something to be thankful for!

But, the biggie that I'm thankful for today is for people who do favors, who make exceptions, who help others out even when they don't have to.
