The Thankful Game

I know throughout every storm I’ve ridden out, every valley that I’ve crossed, and every season I’ve survived, it’s because I try to stay thankful for my haves in life. If you are thankful for the haves and stop worrying about the have nots, the quality of your life will change for the better. It’s something we should do every day just not during the Thanksgiving season. I’m going to tell you what I’m thankful for according to the M&M color. I would like for y’all to comment on what you are thankful for according to your favorite M&M color.

🟠 I’m thankful first and foremost for my son. I know I’ve screwed a lot up in my life but when I see him, I know I did one thing perfectly. I have to also be thankful for my tribe. It’s those 5 that I talk to every week. I don’t know if I’d be here without my tribe that has held me up for the last 5-10 years.

🟢 I’m very thankful for my home in Atlanta. This Nashville native never gets homesick because I love my city so much. I love the culture, the authentic food, the sports, and the people. I’ve never felt like a stranger here or met a stranger.

🟡 This foodie could never pick just one food because I love just about all food. I’m just thankful that I have it. When the pandemic first hit and I saw empty freezers, coolers , and shelves. It was scary to see. I’ll never forget that image. I thank God for all food.

🔵 D ~ I’m thankful for the “Dealing” in “Dealing to Healing”. Without all my 5 decades of dealing and still dealing, I would not be where I am today. I know my story is someone’s survival guide. My dealing has been my experience for my purpose. Yes! I’m thankful for all my dealing!

🔴 I often think about homeless people and it makes me extra grateful for my home. There is nothing better than a hot shower w soap, a comfortable bed, and a thermostat that works. I think it’s the best part of my day.

I wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving and pray you’re blessed. I look forward to seeing your comments about what you are thankful for according to the M&M.
