In Everything, Give…

In everything, give thanks. Every day.

I’m thankful:

  • for being insanely busy
  • for writing five daily blogs
  • for traveling without my family
  • for having writer’s block

Saying it, and not meaning it, is the worst example we can set for people looking to us for a role model. For someone who wants to believe that sacred words and thoughts are more than just words or thoughts.

People are looking for someone who walks the talk, as we say in America. Someone who practices what they preach.

I keep looking for that person in the mirror. Still coming up short. And I’m thankful for that too. I’m also thankful that I keep trying, and after 50 years, still have not given up.
