Grateful

Norman Rockwell

Today in the States it is Thanksgiving.
A day for reflection.
A time for gratitude.

Some of the things I am grateful for:
my sweet husband
my healthy and happy children
a healthy body
a healthy mind
love-filled home
Jesus Christ
extended family
warmth
comfort
a hard-working provider
getting to stay at home with my kids
peace of the scriptures
functioning cars
roof over our heads
clothes on our backs
food in our bellies
shoes on our feet
friends
my children's friends
hugs
kisses
hand-holding
talents
skills
education
and
you...

...just to name a few things.

I am truly grateful for everything I have, even the things I didn't ask for or 
didn't think I needed. I am thankful for it all...or at least I try to be.

May this day be filled with Thanksgiving and love. Whether you celebrate
this Thanksgiving holiday or not.

Happy Thanksgiving.
