Day 19.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving....

I'm giving thanks this month each day on my blog.

Day 19

I'm thankful for the simple things I take for granted.

Today, I stood in the checkout line in the grocery store, and didn't have to worry about how I was going to pay for our evening meal, because we both have jobs that provide us with a good living.

I came home to a warm house, with four solid walls and a roof that will protect us from the wind that whips outside the door tonight.

I got into a car that started easily this morning, and carried me safely to work.

I didn't have to worry about whether I'd have hot water to take a shower with this morning, whether or not I could wash my clothes, because we have a working washer & dryer, and would my food still be safe, because our refrigerator is reliable.

It's easy for me to forget how much the {little} stuff really counts.
And that there are a lot of people who live with less, have to put up with more, and at the end of the day are still proud of what they have.
So here's to celebrating the simple, ordinary pleasures that really aren't so simple.

What are you thankful for today?

Join me (and a whole lot of other people) in giving thanks.
On a blog, on Facebook, a private journal, or a thought kept in your head.

I bet you'll be thankful you did!
