Thankful in Hard Times

thankful hard timesMy life has been crazy of late. Yet, I am still thankful. In the last month, the following has happened.

  • My wife broker her shoulder
  • My daughter broke her pinkie
  • A tire on my car was gashed, so I had to replace the tire
  • A tire on my other car was flat, so I had to repair the tire
  • My clothes dryer caught on fire
  • My wife was in a fender bender accident
  • I got a speeding ticket
  • I dropped my phone and cracked it
  • I am about to run a marathon, but have serious foot/ankle pain

Yet, I am thankful because

  • My wife’s shoulder is healing
  • My daughter’s pinkie is healing
  • My family was not traveling while the tires went out, and I was able to replace/repair then
  • My dryer, not my house caught on fire, and someone blessed me with a new dryer
  • I got a speeding ticket, but got home safely
  • My wife was in an accident, but she and the girls were OK
  • My phone is cracked, but still works
  • My foot/ankle is hurting, but I am still in good health

You have your own list I am sure! Things may be awful, but there is always reason to give thanks. God is good!
