Thanksgiving 2009 - What are you most thankful for??

With Thanksgiving just days away, I thought it would be appropriate to share some of things that I am most thankful for.  Now it is always easy to use Thanksgiving as your "one time" to really focus on what you are most thankful for, however many times that focus ends minutes or hours after you have stuffed yourself with turkey, stuffing, cranberries, biscuits, pie, etc and spent another Thanksgiving holiday around the dinner table with those that mean the most to you.

Here are a few things that I am most thankful for (this year in particular)... and they are not in any specific order of significance.

  • My Family and my new extended family
  • My Wife (Melissa) and our new puppy (Mika)
  • Our jobs
  • Our new home (purchased in April 2009)
  • Our friends (co workers, church friends, etc)
  • Our relationship with God and learning to know him better
  • Witnessing the moment of putting smiles back on the faces of those affected by Hurricane Katrina at the Pictage Charity Portrait Session earlier this month
  • Making new friends
  • Having an open mind for learning, creativity, communication, and dreaming
  • Being inspired by all of our friends and family
  • The gift of life
Think about it for a second, this list could go on and on and on...take a moment and think about it, but dont do it just because it is Thanksgiving!  We should always be thinking about it every day and being thankful for what we have, except in our busy lives these days we often forget to take a moment and think about the other 364 days in the year.  I know I am guilty of this, as I am sure many of you reading this would agree. 

Time yourself and find out how long it actually takes you to say "thank you" whether it is to a friend, your husband/wife, your girlfriend/boyfriend, a family member, the server at your table in the restaurant, the clerk at the register, or your mailman.

Thank you for taking a few moments out of your busy schedule to read this.  Thank you for taking the time to bookmark my blog.  Thank you for your interest in my photography.  Thank you for being a friend to me.

See...that wasn't too hard. 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone!  Be safe and enjoy your time with those that mean the most to you.
