Hi Peace Family! It’s Jami Mayberry. What are you thankful for today? If you look at your life overall…I mean the big picture, I think you will find that you have more to be thankful for than to complain about. And this is coming from someone who felt that way even while fighting a battle against cancer in 2013. I took every opportunity I could to find something, ANYTHING to be grateful for. You would be surprised how many good things surround you that you don’t notice on any given day. We get so busy with all our responsibilities that we don’t have time to stop and appreciate the things and people around us. We all struggle with that. I found that I hurried through my 20’s trying to accomplish and achieve as much as I could in my career. I moved to Los Angeles and worked in Christian radio for 5 years before moving to Nashville and being on the air for 22 years there. I have to confess I didn’t take the time to slow down and be thankful for the good in my life during those years. My hope is that you will be able to do it now and not wait for illness to slow you down like I did. Just 5 minutes at a time can turn your whole attitude and mood around. Boy, I wish I would have learned that earlier! It would have made my life more enjoyable. You are surrounded by God’s creations every day and you have people that love and care about you. How blessed you are!
Every Thursday we encourage you to think about the things you are thankful for and Brian and Kat in the morning and I in the afternoon take your phone calls and let you tell everyone what you are thankful for. Our listener line is 979 695-1077.
I can tell you, without a doubt, we are thankful for you, Peace Family!
