Just about all of my prayers start or end with, "thank you, Lord. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this life."
Every Thanksgiving season, I tend to mentally think about for what I am grateful. This list is usually the same, including the big stuff-family, life, health, grace, etc.
Usually, the list stays mental though. I am not sure if I put voice to all of my thoughts. Today, I thought about a lot of people for who I am thankful, but I didn't tell those people. I don't know why? Maybe it's too mushy, too vulnerable. I'm not sure.
I want that to change. I want to start saying thanks. It seems to mean more that way.
