Another "Thankful Thursday"

What a GREAT day!

Nothing is really unusual for me today. Nothing is really that different for me today.

However - I AM THANKFUL FOR TODAY! What about you? Are you? "Oh, I don't have anything to be thankful for!" you might think or even say.
Really? What about the ability to formulate that thought with your brain? Think about it. The ability to even put that thought together and even perhaps verbalize it is a GREAT SIGN that you are doing o.k. and that you have something for which to be thankful.

Check it out. We sing a song at church entitled, "Count Your Many Blessings" - and sometimes that is what we need to sit down and do. Perhaps you need to spend a little time today either actually sitting down or making some mental notes of things YOU have to be thankful for today.

When you do, when you realize that, indeed, you DO have things for which to be thankful - EXPRESS IT! Even if it's just you around, there is just something about expressing this out loud!

Yes! Be thankful! Today. Thankful Thursday. And EVERYDAY!

"Make it an AWESOME Day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"


  1. Hey Mike,

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the podcasts, and now falling in love with this blog. I just finished a post on my blog about "Thankful Thursday, Despite.." and it's about how even when life doesn't quite go the way we'd like it we can still be thankful. I'm so thankful for you and to you for reminding me that (especially as a Christian - Christ-follower) I can still find something to be thankful for. Many blessings to you Mike.


  2. Thanks for your comment, MJ!

    Yes, indeed - it is a CHOICE! Sometimes it's harder to choose thankfulness and sometimes harder to FIND something for which to be thankful...but most of the time it can be done.
