I am thankful for so much…this is just a little bit…

I am thankful for my family, my children, Simon, a roof over our heads, food to eat, clothes (especially since it has gotten cold after 2 warm winters), medical care, a bed to sleep in, friends, my faith, freedoms, my walk with God, peace—peace with others and peace with myself, to know how to love, to know when I am wrong—sometimes after someone has pointed it out 😉 , possibilities to explore new things, a car to drive and gas to put in it, stores to shop in and jobs for my children, a church to go to, books to read… I could go on and on.


There are things that I am thankful that I don’t have…  I am thankful I don’t have snow to shovel (though I like/love snow), a long trip to travel this week, sickness, diapers to change (oh, I’m so thankful for this), that I’m not in the hospital with a loved one, and in a way…I’m thankful my husband isn’t here to pick up after any more (well…). I am thankful for the good and the bad as all are blessings in some way if we choose to see it. I am thankful for my parents because they chose to keep trying until they had me. I am really thankful for the way they raised me. I’m also thankful—so very thankful—that there are answered prayers and that I kept praying. 🙂


Happy Thanksgiving and may all of your prayers be answered in God’s will and His way.

Happy Gardening! 😀
