Thankful Thursday

Today, I am thankful for... Today. This moment.

Waking up every morning is a gift I too often do not appreciate. Being blessed with another sunrise is the ultimate thing to be thankful for.

On a side note, please remember that the reason we wake up in a free nation, with the ability to write and say what we please (for the most part), worship as we see fit (or don't see fit), earn a living, enjoy the highest standard of living in the world (even our poverty-stricken and homeless live better lives than those in the 3rd world), is because of those who made the choice to fight for our country, serve our country, and sacrifice for our country (and their families who too often have to make extreme sacrifices during their service).
