As I sit here on my inlaws couch nestled in the middle of the flat land of the Midwest, I am thinking on all the things of which I am thankful. Many would even call me lucky.
Then I remember all the times in 2011 that I didn't feel very lucky. I wasn't very thankful.
But I am.
I am blessed.
I am happy.
I am lucky.
I am overwhelmingly loved.
I am the recipient of a life better than most of the world.
I am sometimes sad, sometimes mad, sometimes ungrateful.
But always better off than I deserve.
And luckier than most.
Merry Christmas Eve! Be thankful and remember how very blessed you are!
