Thankful Thursday A Day Late

Yes, I know it's Friday, but we can be thankful on any day of the week.  Right?  We can be thankful for little things and big things.  We should always be thankful for something!

I don't know who to give credit to for this photo.  If you know, please let me know.

Today I'm thankful for my life.  Doesn't this photo just put it all in perspective?  My life isn't perfect, I'm not always happy, and things seem to go wrong more often than they go right.  But I have a good life.  I have everything I need and a few things I don't.  I have family and friends who love me.  I am not alone.  I am not hungry.  Yes, I'm thankful for all that I have and all that I am.

What are you thankful for today?


  1. The photo is heartbreaking :(
    Having worked and lived in a third world country before, I am truly thankful for having enough to eat and access to fresh water. I'm thankful everyday!

  2. Wow, that photo cuts right to the heart! Thanks for the much needed perspective!!

  3. I saw this photo on many facebook statuses yesterday and it touched my heart so much. It really does bring life into perspective, doesn't it?

  4. I frequently end the day by saying to the husband "We are so lucky to have this warm cozy bed in this sturdy little house". It is so easy to get caught up in I Want and I Wish and forget about I Have. Thank you for reminding us.

  5. Sometimes we take for granted such simple things as food and water. In our abundant lives most us never know what true hunger feels like. It is sad that so much food goes to waste in countries that are blessed with incredible bounties when there are so many starving people in this world.

  6. Missed this post somehow...what a touching photo....really puts things into perspective!!!
