Future thankful

Billboards are like trees in Los Angeles. There's whole forests of them down Ventura Boulevard and up Sunset. So today I was driving home after physical therapy thinking about how I can't wait for the day when I won't be assaulted by giant billboards for vodka and designer jeans every five feet. That's when I thought of the idea of being future thankful. I'm future thankful for all of the real trees I'll be surrounded with some day. I'm future thankful for peace and quiet and a house with alot of land to roam around and breathe in. I'm future thankful for the day when traffic and smog will seem like a distant memory and billboards a novelty. And it's funny, somehow being future thankful made me present thankful, and that was a lovely discovery:)


  1. I was always amazed when I went on a mission trip way out in the middle of nowhere; I'd come home and the billboards would be offensive to my eyes. It would take forever to get used to them again.

  2. I like the term "future thankful". It's a perfect mix of "hope" and "attainment". ONWARD!
