It's Turkey Time here in the States. Thanksgiving sneaks in so close to the Christmas rush---hurry, hurry, hurry---that I forget to slow down and sit in the wonder of thankfulness.
So before I forget...
I am thankful for...
My Lord. My God, my Savior. Magnificent. Powerful. Loving.
My family. My mom and dad, who loved me and taught me the important things in life. My sister and brothers who are always there and who are full of love for others. Great in-laws, too. A family that always keep me in hysterics. (Anyone else have families that can really, really tell good stories?)
My town. I've lived in my same little town most of my life and my town is full of wonderful people.
My husband. A good man. He makes every day sparkle.
My sons and my new daughter-in-law. It is such a happy feeling to see my little boys grow up into strong men. And I am so lucky to have a daughter at last, and what a wonderful daughter she is!
My school. How blessed I am to get to work with such amazing teachers, such sweet children, with a fantastic principal, each day! I am so happy to be here at my school.
My friends. I can't believe how many wonderful friends I have in my life.
Thank you, Lord, for all these blessings. Don't ever let me forget to be thankful for all the good things You have given me.
