Let me explain where some of the inspiration for Thank God for my life came from: at my step great grandma’s funeral, the priest’s sermon was about how he knew her as the thank you lady.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you!” she could be heard saying to everyone.
~ She was always grateful to anyone who extended the tiniest act of kindness toward her.
~ She was a very generous woman as well, and no one who knew her ever heard her complain about a thing.
~ In my grade school religion class’ homework of thinking of the saints in your life, she quickly came to mind.
~ She was just the kind of person who is so great to be around, the kind of person you want to be more like. The kind of person that makes you glad to be alive, and that you wish the world was more like.
May God help me achieve that goal of living a more thankful life, and inspiring you to do the same. May we all achieve the happiness she proved was so attainable, with God’s help.
So here is thanking you, back, Cora! Thanks for being a great example of God’s love, and a blessing to everyone lucky enough to have you in their lives. Thanks for inspiring me to be more grateful, although it takes me a while longer to catch on sometimes 🙂 And please be aware that I’m on a quest to help everyone else live the kind of life you lived. To thank God for our lives, no matter where we are on our journeys, every day!
