I Am Thankful

For the past several weeks, I have had an overwhelming sense of thankfulness.  I am so blessed that it is hard to put it into words.

Here are some random things for which I am thankful:

  • My healthy family
  • The opportunity to run a marathon – not everyone has the health to even attempt one
  • An emergency fund and the peace it brings to my family
  • Great friends – I have met so many cool people through this crusade to help others with their personal finances
  • HOPE
  • Opportunity
  • My friend who was diagnosed with cancer has been given a clean bill of health
  • Being able to participate in life-changing work and the FLE, FFE, IWBNIN, Money Help, and other resources that help make the life-change possible.
  • Volunteers who help me with this crusade.  There are literally dozens of people who make this thing work.
  • NewSpring Church
  • Two paid-for cars that run well.
  • A wife who participates in the budgeting process.

As I look at this list, I realize that many of them are interconnected.  Many of them could not exist alone.  But I can tell you this, as I wrote this list, my heart overflows with thankfulness, and I am overwhelmed.  I simply can not believe I get to do this stuff for a living.

If you were to take three minutes to write down what you are thankful for, what would you write?

    I think most people get wrapped up in day to day activity w/o taking a pause to realize what they have and accomplish.

    We all you take time out to appreciate the things we do have.
