For me, the first thing that came to mind was my husband's job. I'm oh so thankful for my husband's job in the military. It fits him to a tee. I think God created him to be a military man. Besides that, his job gives us security, we know we have a paycheck coming every month, down to the day. And his job allows us to explore. I love living in different parts of the country and seeing all that it has to offer.
Yes, being a part of the military has it's downsides as well, but today I'm chosing to be thankful for the gift God has given us in my husband's job. I realize that this, like everything else, could be gone tomorrow, so I chose to be thankful for today.
What gift are you thankful for today?
