Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful for the people who receive no thanks. Often these people include parents, the pillars of a family who battle the world and withstand the ebb & flow of life to give and give and give to their children. Their investment of time and love often doesn't not see a return for decades, if at all, yet still they give.

Thankless jobs and those who dutifully occupy these positions with care and integrity also include road workers who make our ride smoother, custodians who clean our messes, soldiers who protect our way of life, farmers who provide our food, pharmacy assistants who volley between irate patients and stingy insurance companies, factory workers who zipper our jackets, shepherds who woolen our sweaters, quiet employees who provide brilliant, uncredited ideas, people who compost, reuse and recycle and all those who make Tylenol, Band-Aids and Cheerios.

All of these people and more make our lives noticeably better yet go largely unnoticed. So many to thank in our thoughts & prayers, don't you think?

What are you thankful for today?
