What are you thankful for?
A question I ask myself daily as I kneel to God during my constant communication with Him.
I am sure at one time or another, you have either being asked this question or asked yourself.
One song I love, that makes so much sense to me and comes to mind this moment is “Count your blessings name them one by one, count your blessings see what God has done…….”
While new reasons to give thanks pop up every moment, I do count myself fortunate that I have more to be thankful for than I typically may remember. Yes! Like every human being, it could be tough to see the positives in my life, I do know that sometimes I take so many things for granted. So, I decided to follow through with the song, I began to count and name them ONE BY ONE, and I am sure amazed at what God is doing in my life!
So, this Thanksgiving Day, I use it to urge you to count your blessings and name them one by one!
On that note, I am eternally thankful for a LOT!

I am thankful for my daily struggles which may sometimes appear to be stressors – regardless of how I look at them: lessons or reasons to appreciate the next day, I thank You for the grace to endure!
For all of yesterday, today and even tomorrow, and the journey of my life, AbbaModupe Motopeda!!!
