Thank God it's Friday!
Every week most of us work toward this day so that we can have another 2 days off. The expression Thank God it's Friday (TGIF) is used often and by many. Is there anything else you can think of to thank God for. In this instance the word "God" is used as a catch-all word to encompass all spiritual beings. Not everyone believes in God, per se, but they do believe in a higher spritual being.
Those of us that have a job to go to every day should thank God for that, because there are so many who don't. Are your parents still alive? Another reason to be thankful. If they love you and raised you like they should, that's even more of a reason to be thankful. Can you get out of bed every day and walk out your front door without assistance? Ah, one more thing to be thankful for.
It's easy for us to look at what our lives are missing. We spend so much time doing so, that we forget about the things we do actually have. We're a society that has no problem focusing on the negative. How many feel-good stories do you see when you watch the news? Not nearly enough. There are good people and good things out there in the world, but they're overshadowed by the not so good. I challenge anyone who reads this to think about the good things in their life and see how much happier they feel.
