I'm Thankful for Today card

Yes, I am thankful. There are times it is very hard to do anything. It is like life throws one curve ball after another at you. You have to raise your chin on those days and remember all you are thankful for and then the day seems so much better. We all think of Thanksgiving day, family, friends, our home when we are thankful. Then there are jobs, health, hobbies, but what about just being alive to enjoy another day. Another day to spend with family and friends, another day to encourage another soul, another day to say thank you to God for all he has blessed us with, another day to tell someone you love them. We never know when our life may be cut short. We should be thankful for every moment including the hard ones. The hard ones teach us how to be a better person, and to understand others.
