What Are You Thankful For?

42-23612658As another year soon comes to an end and we prepare to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with our family and friends, we should take time to reflect on the things that we are most thankful for. It’s easy at times to focus on the things that we don’t have, but it’s always important to be thankful for the things that we do have. If you still have your home and your job doing this economic downfall that our country has been facing, be thankful. If you are in good health and have health insurance to visit the doctor if the situation arises, be thankful. And if you don’t have any of those things right now, be thankful in knowing that if you stand fast and believe, things can turn around for you.

I am thankful for so much right now in my life. I am thankful that I have accomplished many of the goals that I set out to accomplish this year. I am thankful that I am in good health. I am thankful that I have wonderful friends and a loving family. I am thankful that I am here another year to enjoy my momma’s cooking on Thanksgiving Day.

So, what are you thankful for? It can be the smallest thing. No matter what you are going through, even in the most difficult times, always find something to be thankful for.


  1. As I prepare to go to Afgahnistan in Feb.(i am the army), I am grateful for so many things that I normally over look!! I am happy for my wonderful family and friends and sorors who support me through everything! I am elated to have an education and an ever growing bond with the Almighty. I am thankful for life! =)

  2. I am thankful for breaking up with my ex-boyfriend and found a better one.

    I am thankful for God giving me good news that my mom has passed the cancer test with no cancer.

    I am thankful for a best friend who once was my first love, but now we are best friend and he’s always with me no matter when I am up or down. This is worth than being a boyfriend.

  3. I am thankful for having a great man in my life he is not only my lover but a goof friend ,a companion and a mentor.
    I am thankful my sister has a brand new baby girl and am an auntie .I am thankful for a great family that supports me and stands by me at all times.

  4. I’m thankful for my health; though I’ve been seriously ailing lately to the point of having surgery. I could be far worse but I’m not; thank GOD.

  5. @Tai my prayers for protection go out to you. I am thankful that people like you make it possible for me to be on this blog rambling about unimportant things. I am grateful for my new niece who made diva entrance into the world on August 13, 2009. She is just the funniest little baby. All she does is laugh and she has a very infectious smile.

    I am also grateful for my 9 or excuse me my 9 1/2 niece. She gets very upset if I don’t add the half. She is blossoming into a beautiful young woman right before my eyes. I am also thankful for all my nephews and nieces. Even Michael who I wish would stop getting in trouble at school and follow instructions. He is a free spirit but he will be okay. I am Thankful that my whole family is having Thanksgiving at my sister’s and my Mom is making the dressing. I know that is a lot but I really love my family.

  6. I am thankful for so much! It is hard to name it all here being as blessed as I am! Yet, I am thankful for Jesus being the Lord of my life and Loving me enough to “WANT” a relationship with little ol ME! I am thankful for my health, family and few REAL friends. I am thankful to still have a job in this economy, yet I am on Brown Sista while working :-/
    Im thankful for my growth (maturity) and increased faith & trust in God this year as I encoutered so many obstacles!!!
    I could go on for days!
