Today marks 1 month until my favorite holiday--Thanksgiving. And so today begins my month of gratefulness. Every day from now until Thanksgiving, I will post 1 thing I am grateful for. I'm going to keep a running list throughout the month. Please join me in posting to your blog things you are grateful for.
Today I am grateful for my home.
I have a roof over my head when it's too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry. I have walls around me to protect me from wind, rain, snow, sleet, hail and invaders (of the human or bug or animal variety). I have furniture to sit on, a table to eat at, floors that protect my feet from injury.
According to this website, the statistics for homelessness in the United States are as follows.
- There are 671,859 people experiencing homelessness on any given night in the United States - roughly 22 of every 10,000 people are homeless.
- Of that number, 37 percent are people in families and 63 percent are individuals.
And so, tonight I am grateful for my home. What are you thankful for today?
