I'm thankful for the word "yes".
It's amazing what those little three letters put together can bring into your life.
Oh the adventure of it all.
Of course, sometimes I end up sleeping less than I should. But at the end of my life I don't want to be known as someone who rested well. I want to be known as someone who lived. Period.
There are so many things I wouldn't have experienced had I not said, "yes." Some of the most obvious are listed below... but what's really important among it all, are the relationships, friendships and stories that go along with "yes". There are so many who would be missing in my life today if I had said, "no."
No regrets on the Yes

Getting Hitched. Seriously. I know it sounds crazy. I never ever never ever never wanted to get married. Avoided it. Turned three people down in my 20s. Until the persistent one... Bandmates. Friends. Roommates. Spouses. We had an amazing run. We got to live the adventure together for a little more than 18 years. Partners in crime. It was totally worth it. Doesn't matter that it didn't turn out as we all hoped it would... it's still one of the best things I've ever done. I will never regret that I said yes.
Heck, yeah. I'm thankful for yes. Without it, I wouldn't feel alive.
Ecclesiastes 8:15 NLT
"So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun."
