Be thankful. Be thankful. Be thankful.

Here we are friends, day four of the blog hop, Operation Gratitude 101! I hope you have enjoyed the first 3 days.

Today’s post comes from Joseph Castaneda.

I have known Joe for most of his life, my first “Oh my goodness I am getting old” moment came because of Joe. I have never told him this, but I was driving through Salem and saw him on a 10 speed bicycle looking all grown up. I guess he was about 15 or 16. It seemed as if this little kid had grown up over night. Then we were privileged to have him lead the youth group when my son, Jason, was in Jr. High. His love for youth has always been evident.

Joe has some amazing insight sprinkled with humor that keeps me going back to his blog over and over. I hope you enjoy his writing as much as I do.

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of…
