Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful for every day blessings. Have you ever needed something and then somehow, some way, it miraculously presented itself? Did you need reassurance and a friend, unprovoked, gave it to you? Did plans fall through at the same time you needed an evening to get some things done? Did you have an empty fridge when someone invited you over for dinner? Did you miss being in an accident by >this< much? Did someone turn on a light for you to make your reading easier? Did someone open the door at the precise moment you had your hands too full to open it?

Or ... were you somebody's blessing? ;)

Every day, ordinary blessings tether us together in ways that slip through the fingers of obviousness. For a moment strangers are friends, distance is short and the world is good. Every day blessings delight in being given unexpectedly (though sometimes it's been in the works for months by someone else ;)). I'm thankful for our guardian angels who match us perfectly with these blessings, even if we're too human to appreciate them as they unfold. I'm thankful that people are brimming over with potential, blessings in waiting, and I'm thankful for the ability to be grateful for them as they happen.

What are you thankful for today?
