Today has been a hard day to be thankful for.
Nothing particular happened to upset my flow. I can’t pinpoint anything that has upset or irritated me. It’s just been a weird day.
I didn’t sleep well last night, and I woke up earlier than my alarm then couldn’t go back to sleep.
I’ve felt sick all day. I went home on my lunch break and couldn’t eat anything.
I’ve missed my sister more today than I have for the past several weeks and months.
It’s just been a difficult day.
But I think that the difficult days are the ones that are most important for us to practice thankfulness during. So even though it has been a hard day, I still have three things that I’m grateful for.
- I’m thankful for the first cup of coffee in the morning and the way it seems to warm me up from the inside out.
- I’m thankful for good music. The type of music that fits your mood perfectly, and describes exactly what you’re experiencing in ways you never could.
- I’m thankful for my three amazing brothers who send me funny texts throughout the day to cheer me up, and hang out with me when I ask even though they all have girlfriends, fiances, or wives.
Today it’s been really hard to be thankful. It’s been really hard to look at my day with a positive attitude. Today has been a difficult day. But it’s days like today that point me back to Jesus the most. So I guess I’m also thankful for the hard days.
