The Book of Six© Six Things to be Thankful For

On this Thanksgiving day, it’s time to reflect what I am thankful for. Here are six things that readily come to mind:

  1. Clean water
  2. Fresh air
  3. Food for my tummy and my soul
  4. My three kids
  5. A husband who believes in me
  6. And the abundance of people I call friends.

Digging Deeper:

I’m thankful that I don’t take any of the above for granted…

Happy Thanksgiving!
