Staying Thankful Everyday

     It is almost here, the brand new year.  This past year I've been using the letters of the English alphabet to inspire us when it comes to things for which we can be thankful.  With 26 letter and 52 weeks in the year, I went with one letter every two weeks instead of something everyday.
     This year I'm going to go back to posting everyday, or at least I'm going to try to.  For ideas, I'm looking at different lists pertaining to the day in which I'll be posting for every day seems to be national something day.
     I hope you enjoy it and I hope it encourages you to stay thankful everyday.

Travel In The Snow

     On Tuesday of this past week I was scheduled to see an urologist in Grand Forks which is a little over 2 1/2 hours away.  As it turned out, the night before we finally got snow - over 4 inches which is more than I think we have had all winter so far.  As a result much of the driving was on Icy roads and at times I was going 30 MPH or slower - I was quite stressed.  As for the visit, I feel it was a waste of time but I'm thankful - thankful for the safety on the road, spending over 8 hours with my wife without kids, and a chance to do some shopping on the way home to stock up on some needed items.

     Dear Lord, Thank you
