We all too often get consumed by the every day worries and humdrum of every day life. We don’t always take time to be thankful for the other positive bits of our lives. I aim to make a weekly ‘Thankful Thursday’ because life should never be taken for granted and it is a wonderful wonderful gift that we must treasure with all our might. I’m thankful even if I don’t explicitly state it!

I am incredibly blessed. I challenge you all to be thankful, to take time out of our busy lives just to stop and think about all the wonderful things that we are blessed with.

What are you thankful for?
