A Note to Myself

Dear Self,

Today, while you are thanking God for all those big things He has given you (and for all the petty things you think are important) please remember to thank Him for that breath you just took.

And while you are at it, thank Him for the breath you are about to take, too.

In your daily commotion, you kinda have a habit of taking gifts like that for granted.

Sincerely,
Michael

P.S.  Remember to wish all your blogging friends a Happy Thanksgiving, too.  You are very fortunate to have them in your life.

Thank you Michael for your thought-provoking Blog.

Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours.

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK. But today I'll drink a Guinness to your health!

God bless.

Thanks for this reminder, Michael. It is very easy to forget or at least take for granted that if God forgot us for even a second we would cease to exist.
So let us thank God today for our dependency on Him.
God bless and Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes, Michael!

For each and every breath, for it's difficult for some of to catch that next breath!

God bless you! Joey
