Yesterday I was reminded that we have sooooo much to be thankful and grateful for EVEN when we feel or think we have little to nothing as compared to others! We are all guilty of taking things for granted, each and every one of us. Yes or no?
We need to learn to appreciate what we have before time makes us appreciate what we had. Time waits for no one (can I get an AMEN + HALLELUJAH!)
Here are some things I take for granted sometimes:
- Breathing! Geez, like seriously, we only realize this when we are struggling to breath right? like when we have a stuffy nose. Or what about when we go to sleep? We can stop breathing at any point in our sleep yet here we are this morning, ALIVE and breathing!
- Moms. Now that I’m a mom I see how much my mother did for me! We never truly understand until we are placed in the same roles as someone else. I’m sure she sacrificed so much more than she led on and even to this day, I’m sure there are things and gestures that I can do to show my appreciation for her that I don’t do.
- GPS. DUDE! I am the worse person you can ask, EVER, for guidance! I have the worse sense of direction that no matter how much people have tried to show me East from West and South from North, IT AIN’T happening! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know I’ve probably written too much but honestly, take this as a little nudge to thank God for all the things He’s given us. Thank Him for another breath and day of life this morning. Call mom and tell her you love her! Smile at a stranger this morning, you never know what struggles they may be going through cause let’s be real, we ALL have our own things we deal with.
What are a few things you have been taking for granted?
