I'm Thankful For........

What am I THANKFUL for?

Well, first of all I am THANKFUL for God's free gift of salvation and for his love and care for his children.

I am so very THANKFUL for my parents who have raised me and helped me become the woman I am today. I love them so much and I am blessed to have them with me still as so many people have lost their parents.

I am THANKFUL for my siblings, (wait- did I really just type that?) lol..... just kidding, yes! I am THANKFUL for my brother and sister who have knocked down my building blocks (ahem....Lance) and shared my diary with the boy I liked (cough cough.... Kimberly) and so many other fond and precious memories that we share.

I am THANKFUL and Blessed (far more than I deserve) with the wonderful man that the Lord picked for me to spend the rest of my life with. He is my best friend, my comforter, my supporter, my lover and so much more. 

I am SO THANKFUL for the 'lil' man that the Lord blessed me with 4.5 yrs ago. My greatest joy is being a mother. My heart is so full of love for this small blessing that calls me mommy, I can't imagine my life without him.

I am THANKFUL for the few friends that I have that are true friends, the ones I can call any time day or night and they will be there to listen or lend a hand. Those friends are few and far between and I cherish the ones that I have.

I am THANKFUL for the extended family that I have. Although we don't see each other often or get to spend alot of quality time together I know they will be there for me if I need them.

I am THANKFUL for the material things that the Lord has blessed me with but those things I can live without.

I am THANKFUL for my teachers, preachers and leaders who have sacrifed their time and spent their energy on me.

I am THANKFUL for our service men and women who sacrifice their lives for my freedom. 

I have so much to be THANKFUL for, I am truly blessed..........

Happy Thanksgiving!
