This is just a little piece about what I’m thankful for.
Sometimes it’s easy for me to think that someone else has more reason to be thankful than i do.
Truth is no matter what circumstances I am going through, the single fact that I am among the living is enough reason to be thankful.
I could live the healthiest lifestyle ever known, go jogging in the morning, eat little or no carbs, do yoga and meditate; still i cannot guarantee that i will live the next minute.
I have learnt that the art of thanksgiving is the most powerful kind of prayer.
When I give thanks for things I have and things I don’t have, I set myself up for greater and better things to come.
I know I cannot remember all you have done for me but please God forgive my forgetfulness.
I thank you cause I know that next time I will remember even more to give thanks for.
Please spare me a few minutes of your busy schedule and listen to my prayer of thanksgiving.

For those of us who do not have a specific date set out as thanksgiving, you can pick out a day yourself.
Make it a memorable day like your birthday, wedding anniversary, or a day you were divinely healed from a stubborn illness or miraculously saved from a life threatening accident.
When you pick out this date, mark it on your calendar and spend time on this day every year giving thanks.
I pray that you will always have a reason to give thanks.
Now to my American friends.
