Living in a fast paced, technology thriving society these days can certainly distract us from being thankful for the things that we are all guilty of taking for granted. We are surrounded by iPhones, iPads, iMac and "i-stuff," when often the "little things" in life are forgotten. Don't get me wrong, technology is a wonderful tool, and I use it everyday. I am finding that I have to force myself to slow down, and soak in all that God has given me: the ability to walk and talk, read and write, having a place to call home, a car to drive, air in my lungs, food to eat.....Of course there are so many more, but you get the idea. For these things, I have a grateful heart.
