Thankful Thursday – A Roof Over My Head
It’s easy to get caught up in the stress and worry of day to day problems and not count the blessings we have so I like to think of things I’m thankful for throughout the week. This week what I’m thankful for might seem simple but, it’s not something that everyone has.
I’m thankful for a roof over my head – it snowed on Tuesday and last night temps dropped below zero with the wind chill. I got home from work yesterday and I was frozen to the bone. When I walked inside the heat felt so soothing. It made it think just how blessed I am to have a home to walk into after being out in the cold. Not everyone has the same luxury and while it may seem like something small I’m sure not having a place to get warm and rest is very big and extremely stressful. I hope the homeless in this area are able to find shelters to keep warm in and for those of us who have homes and heat I hope that we are always grateful for it.
I believe we should never get so caught up in our lives that we forget to step back and look at all the blessings we have. It keeps us humble and reminds us that even on the bad days we have so much to be thankful for.
