The Front Porch View-November 2019

Give Thanks

I am looking forward to a turkey dinner with the family that I don’t have to shop, prepare or cook for. It is this time of year I remind myself to Give Thanks. Even in life’s storms, there is always something to be thankful for. All we need to do is change our lens and look at things differently. Car not running right? Give thanks for the car. Kids not acting right? Give thanks for the kids. A friend hurt your feelings? Give thanks for the friend. Imagine life without some of the everyday things we find ourselves complaining about and recognize most times, what we find ourselves complaining about are first world problems that folks in third world countries wish they had. Take time to give thanks. Today I give thanks for all of you, my trusted family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving!
