Thirty Days of Thanks - Day 24: Thankful (in everything)

I just erased half my post. After working on it for almost an hour.

AAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHH!

Is screaming complaining?!

"In everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 
~I Thessalonians 5:18

Really?

Okay, thank you (low groan). It's not always easy.

Today has been a normal day. Busy. I'm tired and uninspired. But thankful.

Especially because I am seeing things I wouldn't have otherwise.

If I wasn't deliberately looking and giving thanks.

Even on normal, busy, tiring and uninspiring days.

Having a hard time giving thanks? Check out this video.
