“What’s there to be thankful for?” The very fact that you had articulate speech and could express this question – be thankful for that. The fact that you are alive – be thankful for that. The fact that you have breath enough to speak or show your (negative) thought via paper or electronic media – be thankful for that. These last three sentences are like teasers – lift your eyes off of your circumstances; start to really see beyond you (your selfishness?) and there are hundreds of things for which to thank GOD. Dare you to start!

Blessings, blessings of all sizes.

Some clearly seen, some in disguises.

(Who doesn’t like surprises?)

At noon, at dark, at sunrises

Are mine to enjoy, o’er and o’er.

Note about dates/approximate accuracy.

Since the ‘70’s I’ve carried a “pocket pal” “pocket planner” (or equivalent). Dad gave one of my earliest ones – Thank you, Dad (died ‘76) for the start. I do not know who shared the concept of writing down ideas as they come – but Thank You too. It’s natural to scribble (actually I print, mostly all caps) the idea on the date it comes. Years later I put these ideas (as decrepit as some readers think they are J) on computer files; named them “eabits” – bits connects to computer lingo and eab connects to me. As I look for an “eabit” for a day I may see one that could be expressed better another way, could use clarification, or otherwise be modified. If the main idea stays the same it will probably appear under that date, though edited. Other eabits are current.
