It’s a good thing to do, to stop and think of what you’re thankful for.
Today as I ponder what I am thankful for, I take a drink out of the tumbler of water right in front of me. And I realize that’s it. That’s what I’m grateful for today.
It may seem like a crazy thing when there are so many huge things to thank God for (wife, children, home, job, family, etc.), but I need to be honest: I’ve never been as thankful for water as I’ve grown to be this year.
I’ve made a concentrated effort to change a lot of my habits this year.
I’m exercising more regularly, eating better, and drinking less Diet Coke.
And water has been part of that refreshing, “feel better” me. My wife has been a huge encouragement to me in drinking at least twice as much water as soda, and it’s made a huge difference. So today, I’m grateful for water–something God blessed me with a long time ago that I’ve never appreciated as much until this year.
