11 things I’m thankful for on 11-11-11:



Veterans
Everyone who is (or was) active duty, honorably discharged, in the reserves or retired from the U.S. Armed Forces, contributed to my safety and freedom. I salute you!

Friends and Family
They cheer for me when I triumph, lend a hand, ear, or shoulder during defeat, and give me a swift kick in the pants when I need it.

Health
I’m able to stand, walk, and talk. I am blessed. I work with many who can’t. Seeing their struggles and victories puts so much into perspective.

Home
‘There’s a roof up above me. I’ve a good place to sleep. There’s food on my table and shoes on my feet.’

Kind Strangers
They’ve shared a smile, returned a lost phone, given me directions, and allowed me merge into their lane.

Laughter
It’s the most economical medicine for the soul. And it tastes good.

Freedom
So many don’t have it. So many die fighting for it. It was given to me by U.S. Veterans.

Books
They give me something to stick my nose into, without getting me into trouble. (Lol)

Troubles
No, I haven’t lost my mind—not completely anyway. Without the valleys, I wouldn’t know the joy of reaching the peaks.

Imagination
The imaginings of my mind is what gives life to my dreams.

God
He’s given me everything I’m thankful for.
