86,400 Seconds

From sunup to sundown, each day graces us with exactly 1440 minutes. 86,400 seconds. 24 hours. How many of these minutes, how many of these hours, how many of these precious, precious seconds do we spend remising about what is not? Gratitude is the anecdote for regret, remorse, and affliction. If we utter not another prayer during our seemingly busy days, a prayer of thanks would be enough. It would be enough...

On this day of gratitude, I must express that in spite of what is wrong with this world, there is so much that is right. If you would take a moment to leave me a comment about what is right in YOUR world, I would be ever so thankful. Happy, happy Thanksgiving.

*For a special post about gratitude, please stop by Laura's blog. She requested that people send her a few sentences about what they are grateful for and will be posting the responses on Thanksgiving Day. The results should be amazing.

What is right in my world is that all 3 kids are well this day, my son is not in Afghanistan, my husband is alive and well and even though I'm on crutches, I'm grateful it's only for a week. We are warm, have food and can see, hear, walk and talk. And I have phenomenal friends like you. Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your angels. Love ya, Ness

Deb,

As always your words provoke great thought.

I am grateful for all those who show up in my world in just the right time. You are one of those I count in this group. Your blog seems to have the right words at the right time. Thank you.

Excellent post. It's amazing how many seconds are in a day. How many seconds are in a lifetime. It really is important to appreciate the simple and seemingly mundane activities of everyday life.
