I am thankful for God’s grace, my children, my parents, my grandchildren and my great grandchild. For extended family members. For friends and coworkers. For our church family. For good health. For peace. For my big old drafty house and all its nooks and crannies. For knowledge and patience and understanding. For bus drivers. For books and the talented people who write them. For my favorite tv shows. For the food we eat. The clothes we wear. For the Mister and our time spent together. For trips to New York City. For Christmas Carols, pretty presents, sparkling trees. For leaves to rake. For sunshine and rain. For beaches. For trains. For freedom. For my 16 year old car. For nights curling up on the couch with the kiddies and watching animated movies. For my colorist and hair stylist, thank you Katie and Joe! For my job. For my doctor. For my life on this earth. For love. For all this and so much more.
Peace and giving,
Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
