Being Thankful

I am taking too much for granted. There are so many things to be thankful for. Sure, my off-the-wall emotions are tearing me up like a bulldog destroying a newspaper. But that's okay. I've got a roof over my head, a loving family, financial stability, and a broadband connection It doesn't get much better than that! :D

Really though. Just got to thinking earlier about how wonderful it is to finally be able to sleep through the night -- without "coming to" at 3am to gasp for air because my body forgot to breathe. It's great to wake up in the morning without needing a drink to calm my trembling hands, pounding head, and churning stomach.

The amazing thing is, I no longer need to take a drink to function through a day ... and that is a priceless miracle in itself. I never thought I would be able to function for any length of time without a drink. It's great to see that it's possible now.

That's awesome! I've been praying for you and I'm thankful to hear your'e thankful :) A thankful heart is a heart that shows evidence and recognition of God's glory. He's able to work more in us when we are thankful, becuase aren't holding negative feelings against him. I'm happy for you!
