Thankful Thursday | Savannah GA Photographer

It is easy to find things to be thankful for in my small little universe when there is so much tragedy happening in Haiti right now.

When I feel sad that my poor Annika has pneumonia, I remember she is alive with me…we have good health insurance…she will be better soon.

When I feel angry that my electric bill doubled this month, I remember that I have heat when I am cold….that I have clean water to drink.

When I feel depressed that I can’t buy those cute flip flops I saw at the mall, I remember that I have clothes on my back…that I have a roof over my head.

When I feel lonely because my family and most of my friends are a thousand miles away, I remember that they are still with me, even if they are far away….that I will see them again soon.

I am thankful for so much…so many things that are easy to forget.

What are you thankful for?

  • Great post, and great pic too. I’m grateful that my son turned 7 today and he’s happy and healthy, I have a million other things to be thankful for as well, and I’m thankful to you for reminding us to be thankful.

    Love this post. I am so sorry Annika is sick – poor little thing. I hope that you are staying strong and that she is well very soon.

  • Sharon Miller

    She’s beautiful. I totally relate to your post. I wake up every morning thankful for the eyes that opened and see the world and the legs that hold me up when I get out of bed. Then the thanks goes on and on from there throughout the entire day.

  • I totally understand this post…it is eye opening as well. Love the photo…hope she is back to 100% soon!

  • Love this Post! I know I am SO thankful for my Happy and Healthy Family.. Praise the Lord!

  • Ok I am guilty as charged on the electric bill gripe. Ours is 100.00 more this month than last. It’s the highest we have ever had since living here. Ugh. But I am so thankful that we have the heat and lights and hot water to bathe in. Thanks for putting this all into perspective for me! P.S Anyone ever tell you that your baby girl is a spitting image of you? ;) Just checking. lol
