This morning I woke up reflecting on how thankful that I am for this time in my life. I am thankful to have a loving family and friends, a roof over my head, and a job that pays the bills. I am thankful that in spite of some poor decisions that I may have made in the past, my life did not get derailed and go off course. I have typically been someone who was a cautious decision maker. As a young person, I would think about what kind of trouble might occur and what if my mom and dad found out. Nevertheless, I have been some places that I shouldn't have been. I have done some things that were not in my best interest. I have hung out with some people that were not good for me. I have made some choices that could have put me in some precarious situations. Any of those times could have resulted negative consequences. Yet, in spite of all that, I am here to tell my own story and I am thankful to my Heavenly Father for ordering my steps so that I could be right where I am today.
Fortunately, with age comes wisdom. As I prepare for this Thanksgiving Holiday, I truly realize that every day is a day of Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving from me to you!
