On this Thankful Thursday, which is also Valentine’s Day I am thankful for love. One of the first things I learned growing up in a loving family is that God is love. Several decades of life have simply strengthened that early belief. As an adult I have learned that where love is God is. We are bathed in love by family and friends. God continues to shower us with blessings. Of course, there are the trials of daily living, but they are miniscule when compared to the constant flow of blessings. Life is a gift. Love is a gift. Today is a gift. Today let someone know how much you care for her or him and express your thanks to God for the presence of that person in your life. Paul Bear Bryant speaking about the importance of relationships said, “Imagine that the person with whom you are speaking will not live past midnight. How would you treat her or him?” The people in our lives are gifts. The wonderful thing about love is that the more you love the more you have the capacity to love. You cannot exhaust the supply of love. Thankful Thursday is a day set a part to recognize the importance of someone to our lives and to let her or him know of our gratitude. Develop and attitude of gratitude. Say Something Nice; Be a Lifter. You will be glad that you did.
