I'm Grateful

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and the other day at work was crazy. I was in one meeting, then had to be pulled out of it for a different meeting, then a phone interview, then there were a few guests who stopped by my office, then back to my computer to hurry and meet a deadline. After work, I was bushed.  When Ken picked me up to drive me home, I told him about my crazy-busy day. And he paused after listening to my litany and said with a grin, “But you’re not bedridden, are you?” Immediately, I understood what he meant and happily answered, “You’re absolutely right; I am not bedridden and I don’t have cancer anymore -- at least I don't think. And I don’t have pneumonia. I haven't broken a bone today. I have a job and friends and a good home and… I am grateful!” And guess what,  I meant it. It’s why Ephesians chapter 5 says to give thanks in everything. Even for a crazy-busy day.
