Thankful

Thanksgiving

I am grateful for -

A Savior who died for me to live.

Weather that makes me need to wear a sweater.

My health, that I can walk, talk, see, smell, eat, potty, laugh, sing, and cry.

My job, the great people I work for, with, and the great team that works for me.

My husband who is patient and loving when I don't deserve it.

Our son getting excepted at University North Texas today.

Our daughter is making good grades and keeping up with band her first year in High School.

Knowing that we will see our oldest son in less than a month, God willing.

Family- the ones that we don't live with but that are important enough and loved enough to be a regular part of our lives.

Forgiveness, and REAL friends who forgive and continue in relationships in spite of imperfections and hurt, who are willing to work through rather than walk away.

The right to vote.

Lower gas prices.

Soup.

The ability to write, the freedom to put out here what is on my heart and spell check.

All very wonderful and basic things that we can so easy become accustom to and therefore take for granted. Many of this things come simply by living in American.

Praise the Lord for it all.

Seeing with eyes of gratitude has changed the way I live! Blogging has helped (believe it or not), because I am always looking through the lens of story at my life now.
Precious post!
