Ok, I have fallen behind in my Daily Thanks for the Month of November. Sometimes the best of intentions get way laid by life. I’m a little behind on a few of my blog posts as well.
Day 7… I am thankful for my Freedom of Choice. I am lucky to live in a country, that has that privilege. I can choose who I want to be my Political leader, and I have the right to choose.The freedom to choose is one of the only real freedoms you have, and the most important freedom you have; you should not let other people, or the government, or the collective, choose for you, you should choose for yourself, you have the Right and Free-Will .
Day 8….I am thankful that I am a Veteran. I choose to sign a blank check for my country, I was very lucky, that the check never got cashed in. But I learned a bunch from being in the Military, and I am a much better person from my experience. I learned discipline, teamwork, and to many other things to mention, other than if I could do it over, it is one experience I would do again.
I started with something on Facebook last night, and then I came across this website today.
This is November and there are a bunch of different things going on, but I found this and really liked the idea and concept.
So, each day I will do a 30 day of thanks post, besides my regular posts.
I have to catch up, last night I posted my first day of thanks, it went something like this:
Day 1: I am thankful for courage.
I will elaborate on my blog instead of just leaving the one word sentence. I am thankful for finding the courage for what I do every day. There are good days, and there are bad days. I have faced things I never imagined in my life I would ever do. But I have found the courage to do it, and continue to do it.
Today I posted:
Day 2: I am thankful for the beautiful sunrise I watched while driving to my Dad & Mom’s this morning.
This morning, I let the Farmer sleep in and went over early. While I was driving over to the Farmer’s house, I went the back way. I saw a truly incredible sight. When I came to the part of the road, where it becomes like a forest with a dirt road, and through winding hills, I saw a 7 point Buck standing in the middle of the road.
At the same time I saw him, the sun came creeping over the top of the hill. At first I got nervous, because I didn’t want him to run into me. But we kind of had a stare off. I rolled down my window, and said “Hi”. He looked at me for a moment and then went back into the woods.
That sight combined with the sunrise, gave me such a good feeling that has lasted most of the day.
