I’m Thankful for…
Family and friends…that’s always first on everyone’s list, right? But there are so many other things to be thankful for in our lives.
Health, freedom, our military, police and fire department personnel, teachers. Think about all these!
Health: another not so good year for me. But every time I get that “poor me” feeling, I think about others who aren’t in such good shape. Bless those going through devastating diseases. I’m thankful for my health.
Freedom. How lucky I am to live in the US. Just look around the world at the terrible treatment people receive…especially women. Some countries treat women with no respect or regard. I can voice my opinion and have choices in every aspect of my life. I’m thankful for freedom.
Our Military: For 21 years, I was an Army wife. Moved/traveled wherever the Army sent my husband. When he returned from Vietnam, respect for military people was sorely absent. I’m pleased to see so much being done now for those who serve our country and put their lives in danger to protect our way of life. Have we finally learned that freedom is not “free” and that it comes at the cost of endangering those who take an oath to protect us? I’m thankful for our military.
Police and Fire Department Personnel. Both serve to protect our lives. Both deserve our respect and gratitude. Daily, these public servants put their own safety at risk to protect us. I’m grateful for police and fire department personnel.
Teachers: As a former teacher, I enjoyed watching my students’ faces “light up” with enthusiasm when they finally learned something new. Teachers shape our children’s lives and “open up” the world of knowledge and understanding to them. Learning to read is a major accomplishment. I’m thankful for teachers.
We place too much time idolizing celebrities/sports figures. Yes, they have their entertainment value, but the value of our military, police and fire department personnel, and teachers is sorely undervalued. I’m thankful for the integrity to see the difference.
