May 19, 2008 Thankfulness

By harrisjensen - Posted on 19 May 2008

The greatest story ever told is the story of your individual life.

The attitude of thankfulness helps you read this story.

I wake up each day and express my thankfulness for three things before I start my day and state what kind of a day I want.

Today, I am thankful for my wife and son and daughter.  I want to have a good Monday.

I left the house to do my chores, feeding dogs and horses and partridges and such.  The sun was blazing in the eastern sky.  How fresh and warm was that light northwest wind.  Two partridge eggs were in the pen of adult birds, which I put in the incubator where I found one newly hatched bird to put in the brooding pen with six other chukar partridge chicks.  The other chicks were 2-4 days old and zipping around the box, bouncing off each other, cheeping with abandon.<!--break-->

Life occurs like race horses coming out of their gates.  With a burst of activity, DNA from parents is wound into a unique strand for the new animal.  Then comes the long and slow development in the womb, or the egg if you are a bird.  With birth or the hatch, wow!  The newborn is exhausted, but with energy recovered, the young leap into the business of living!

I am so thankful for the miracle of life. 

Life is a book we are writing and we are always on the page we are writing.

I hope you have a good day today,
