Thankful Musings

Today in America is a day to give thanks.  I must have more reason than anyone I know to be grateful.  Here are just a few:

  • two beautiful and intelligent daughters who love me and their dad and God
  • a strong and good husband who loves me enough to die for me
  • a church family where I feel at home and loved and accepted
  • friends for the journey who really care
  • this blog where I can express myself
  • my blogging partner who is a faithful sister to me
  • readers who take the time to stop by and offer an encouraging comment or share a common struggle
  • a job I really enjoy that provides for my family (that means a lot to a kid who grew up on welfare)
  • the beginnings of long awaited healing with the promise of more
  • courage to take a hard look inside myself and ease the grip of fear
  • God – my true King and Lord and Father – who still hasn’t given up on me

What are some things you are thankful for?
