What If?

What If?
What if you woke up tomorrow
and the only things you had
were the things you thanked God for today?
How empty or full would your world be?
I heard this question asked on my radio station
and the question keeps coming back to me
day after day after day.
I for one am not thankful enough when
communicating with God.
My list of requests always far out weighs,
my praises, my thank yous and worship.
Are you guilty of the same?
God -
Where do I begin? 
You have given me so much,
and I am so ungrateful.
Forgive me for taking so much for granted.
Thank you for my husband and my girls.
Thank you for a safe place to live and a
comfortable home which I can afford.
Thank you for my present jobs with children.
Thank you for my son-in-laws and grandchildren.
Thank you for Miguel's visa and arrival to the
U.S. -- as always your timing is perfect.
Thank you for the beautiful nature that surrounds us.
Thank you for technology that allows me to
communicate with my girls who are so far away.
Thank you for your unconditional love,
your forgiveness, your faithfulness,
and your perfect timing.
That's a whole lotta thanking and still.....
tomorrow I would be without.....
my friends, my neighbors, my church,
and oops there went my dog.
What If?

I would also be without many things- I need to start being more grateful- thanks for the reminder.
