Per a family tradition, I thought it would be nice for all of us to share with each other what we are thankful for. Just before we sit down for Thanksgiving dinner, my whole family gathers in a huge circle to share what we are most thankful for this year. I can never seem to fit everything in, in the small amount of time we are given, so I thought it would be cool to start this thread now, in anticipation for Thanksgiving.
I am thankful for:
My son – He loves me unconditionally, his innocents and curiosity is refreshing; he keeps me young at heart not to mention he keeps me on my toes.
My husband – He loves me with every fiber of his being and I in return. He is my best friend, my hero; my rock. He has given me every opportunity to better myself, and supports me in most decisions. He keeps me grounded and level headed; and he makes me smile and roll my eyes are the same time.
My triumphs and my hurdles – Everything that I have experienced in my life has made me the person that I am today.
The lord’s gift of life – The lord holds my life in his hands each and every minute of every day. Twice I was close to meeting my maker, but haven’t been called home yet. I am thankful for the time spent here with my loved ones.
My family and friends – Although my family and friends are a sorted bunch, I am thankful for the little bit of spice they add to my life. They have taught me much and I have taken in so much from them.
My sister’s college career – No one ever would have thought that she would have gone or will be going so far.
I am sure there is more, and I will add them as I think of them. Please feel free to share what you are thankful for here.
