Always Find The Silver Lining - What Are You Thankful For

Chaplains Corner
By Jim Bull

Being Thankful

You know it seems the more time goes by the more I realize how thankful I am for the things that I have. It certainly is very easy to take things for granted, isn’t it? I don’t know if it’s what our society teaches us or if it’s just human nature but either way I am finding that by stopping each morning to give thanks for the things that I do have makes life more enjoyable. I mean who wants to go through life in a “state of want” all the time?

So let’s see what the bible says about it:

1 THESSALONIANS 5:18 - Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. (NLT)

This month’s inspiration came not only from the bible but from long time MAMA racer Bryce Reeves. I have a habit of asking people “whats up” and Bryce just happened to be standing near me while I was taking pictures at Southfork and he said something like “God first, then family, then mx” and that sparked our conversation and the basis for this article.

It turns out about a year ago Bryce suffered from a brain hemorrhage which led to a stroke and heart failure which almost took his life. He ended up in the hospital for about a week and a half and till this day still doesn’t have full use of the left side of his body.

He told me that after spending 41 years racing motocross and raising his kids at the track and watching them grow up racing that there was no way he could stop, that he had to find a way to stay on the bike. It was a year to the day after Bryce was released from the hospital that he crawled back on the bike at Tomahawk earlier this year.

He’s had to retrain his body and learn to compensate with his right to make the left side of his body work. Bryce told me he always believed in God but his health experience made everything he thought he already believed come to reality.  He believes that because of God that he is still here racing and for that he is most thankful.

Bryce said if the race was to the first turn only that he could still win every time.

So I’ll ask you, what are you thankful for? Do you stop to think about it on a regular basis or do you unconsciously go through your days looking for more? Please don’t misunderstand the point I’m trying to get across. I too am a believer in setting goals and always striving to do your best - here I’m talking about the things that we sometimes take for granted. Maybe it’s the things our family does for us on a regular basis that we’ve come to expect or possibly a coworker that pulls some extra weight for you on a day that you’re a little sluggish. Maybe it’s the fact that we just woke up today and aren’t in pain and all our body parts work.

I would ask you to think about it and even to write it down. I’ve found a good little habit to form is the minute you wake up to think about three things you are thankful for that morning. Maybe start a journal and write it down every day but more importantly if your thankful for someone in your life or the things that they do for you - let them know about it, just don’t assume that they already know.
