Thankful for What Didn’t Happen

by

Jo Huddleston

 

Again, before Halloween, retailers have brought out Christmas things to get us into the gift-buying mode. This happens earlier and earlier as the years go by. In the past, retailers waited until the day after Thanksgiving for the official start of Christmas season.

 

I hope the exceptionally early start to the Christmas season doesn’t overshadow the Thanksgiving holidays completely. I wouldn’t want to look ahead to Christmas so much that I didn’t focus on Thanksgiving Day when it arrives.

 

Around the Thanksgiving holiday, most people pause, however briefly, and try to be thankful for their blessings. Usually we include even things we take for granted all year. But have we ever stopped to be thankful for things that we don’t have; for things that didn’t happen?

 

I’m thankful I didn’t spend time the past year as a hospital patient. I’m thankful I wasn’t in an accident that left me injured, with a long recovery time.

 

I’m grateful that our community wasn’t devastated by a fierce tornado or hurricane. I’m glad no trees fell across the roof or through a window, and no power lines lay tangled in the yard.

 

I’m thankful that Santa Ana winds didn’t whip across our state, like they did in California, fueling ranging fires, which consumed everything in their path.

 

I’m thankful my community didn’t have an outbreak of dreaded infection or contagious disease like that which hit some locations. I’m grateful that malnutrition and hunger don’t bring pain to children’s faces in my community like those situations I see on television.

 

At the same time I’m being thankful for having missed some bad events this past year, I’m also thankful for the good things.

 

I’m thankful for the privileges I have because I live in America, and for the responsibilities those privileges bring to me. I’m grateful for teachers, from pre-school through college, who teach because they love and want to help the student to discover learning.

 

I’m thankful for my community’s police department and fire department that provide for the safety and well-being of our citizens. I’m grateful for every health care worker and medical professional in my area who remain dedicated to the health and welfare of their patients.

 

I’m thankful for all things electronic. They make my life easier and more interesting even though I don’t understand them.

 

I’m grateful for neighbors who care. I’m thankful for books to read, sunsets to enjoy, and grandchildren to love.

 

Most of all, as I count my blessings every Thanksgiving Day, I’m glad I have Someone to thank. “Enter his gates with Thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” (Psalm 100:4, NIV)

 

Book Blurb:

When Donna Turner and two girlfriends leave Alabama in 1956 and head to California on Route 66, Donna runs out of money. Her girlfriends continue the journey to Los Angeles, leaving Donna in Needles, California where a dream-come-true adventure is about to happen.

At age fifteen, she worshiped the ground he walked on, and now he shows up at the diner where she works. Will he remember her or does he still think of her as her brother's skinny kid sister? Will Donna be confident enough in herself to accept her dream?

Jo Huddleston From Auburn At 10/30/2016 6:27:50 PM

Maxie, I agree with you about stores rushing to get out Christmas things so early. Thanks for coming by.

Jo Huddleston From Auburn At 10/30/2016 6:26:31 PM

Donna, glad you like my character''s name. :) I try to be thankful in every prayer I pray. Thanks for commenting.

Maxie Anderson From Texas At 10/30/2016 1:20:41 AM

Patti, thanks for having Jo here. I have some of her books I hate the way they rush the holidays now. I liked it when I was younger and we had time to think about each holiday and what it meant. And now the stores can''t even wait till the day after Thanksgiving to open the stores Maxie

Donna B From Freeman Spur, IL At 10/29/2016 9:59:35 PM

I agree that we need to be thankful not only for the things we have but for things or events that didn''t happen to us. Thanks for this giveaway. By the way, I love your character''s name!!
