What is thankfulness? Most people think of thankfulness as being happy to have their possessions, such as a fancy car, a nice house, or a well paying job. When I think of thankfulness, I think of how thankful I am to be loved by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who was willing to die for an undeserving, fallen creature that I am apart from Him, but through His love I am accepted into His eternal family, and I will praise Him forever. I am also thankful for the love of my family and my friends who care about my well being. I am also thankful for my life and I will strive to live it to the fullest capacity possible.
