Black lettering on a background with a burst pattern says "Surprise."

I’m thankful for my job. The surprise today was a large document that needed worked on – quickly. So I worked late.

I’m thankful for my home. The surprise today was that contractors who have delayed coming for many weeks called and said they would be here first thing in the morning. So we are getting things ready.

I’m thankful for my family. The surprise today was…no surprise – they always come through. Enough said.

I’m thankful for my health. The surprise over the past couple of days has been a nasty cough. I’ve eaten a megaton of cough drops today and am hoping for rest tonight.

I’m thankful for life itself. The surprise every day is how very much we can take it all for granted. I work on being thankful, every day, in all things.

I’ve struggled in recent months to find the time and energy to write. A group of writers proposed writing something every day for the month of October, based on a one word prompt, and writing in just five minutes – no worrying about perfect grammar or always being poignant or well-polished. I’m giving it a go in an effort to jump start my writing. For the one word prompts, I’m going to follow along with The Upper Room’s Sight Psalms. They put out a picture a day and apply one word and a short reflection. If you are reading this, thanks for accompanying me for this experiment in motivation and discipline.
