As you can tell, I am thankful for LOTS of things, especially coffee. I could have written much, much more; but I think you get the point. Today, I encourage you to think of TEN reasons you are thankful. Hopefully, this will encourage you to think of reasons to be thankful every single day. Even though this is a time of "Thanksgiving," we have countless reasons to give thanks daily. We all have so much to be thankful for. My hope and prayer was that each and every one of you realized how truly blessed you are and never lose sight of that thankfulness.

So have a happy, happy, HAPPY "Turkey Day." Eat that extra helping of potatoes and that extra slice of pie. You'll thank me later (I hope!).

"...give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." -1 Thessalonians 5:18
