Each morning I am in the habit of thanking The Lord for something before getting out of bed. Some mornings it is difficult to decide what to be thankful for. This difficulty lies not in there being so few, as the truth is I have experienced numerous blessings, a lifetime worth. No, the difficulty does not come in thinking of something to be thankful for, rather, in choosing the right one.
Being thankful for something specific sets the tone for my day. It gives me a purpose, a focus. True, I could pick any number of things for which I am thankful; however, I have found when time is taken to consider something specific for that morning my day begins in a special way.
It is good to be thankful for all The Lord has blessed us with. It is also good to be thankful in a focused manner.
