could remember where I read this.}

The article discussed things we all take for granted.  I know many of the items mentioned were things I do every day without even thinking about it.  Have you thought to be thankful for opening your eyes in the morning?  That line grabbed me.  Then the author, shared how to be thankful for sitting up and standing up and walking and breathing on our own.

We do these so naturally that until we lose the ability, we never think about being thankful.

This reminded me that no matter what we are going through at the moment, we have so many little things to be thankful for that we don’t even think about it.  As the saying goes, “this too will pass.”

However, everything we have is thanks to one person.  James 1:7 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”
