This time of year we ready ourselves for New Years Resolutions but I try not to make any until I have given serious thought about the things for which I am thankful. It doesn't have to be something that happened this year just something for which I am thankful.
I have so much to be thankful for this year. My family is healthy, we have a comfortable home, we have jobs, we can pay our bills and save for a "rainy day", we have friends who mean the world to us, and a growing faith. These people and things are very important to me and I want to make sure that they remain so and it makes setting a new goal for the coming year easier.
