Thanksgiving

Well with Thanksgiving coming up I wanted to talk about some of the things I'm thankful for of course! And if I don't start now I will probably be late, so better early than late!
I'm thankful that my husband went to get me a cherry coke and that we can laugh together and enjoy each other's company and that I know he loves me and wants the best for his family!
I'm thankful that I serve a merciful God that knows I need his mercy and willingly gives it to me!
And of course I'm thankful that His mercy endures forever (Psalm 136)!
I'm thankful that I can read the Bible where ever I want, in my home, in public or online, yes I'm thankful for an online Bible that I can search!
I'm thankful for my oldest child, who is still so innocent and full of joy!
I'm thankful for oldest son, who loves deeply and feels all things intensely!
I'm thankful for my middle son, who is not afraid to express himself!
I'm thankful for my youngest child, who is not yet walking or talking, yet strives to investigate all things and manages to let us know when he wants something!
I'm thankful for my two loving parents who have always been there for me!
I'm thankful for my sister who is always so thoughtful and caring!
I'm thankful for my grandparents (on my Mother's side) that live such a Godly example of life!
I'm thankful for my grandparents (on my Father's side) that they are with Jesus in heaven and I will see them again one day!
I'm thankful for my all of my relatives both through blood and marriage and that I have no enemies among them (but if I do let me know so I can fix that ;)!
I'm thankful for my loyal dog Lily!
I'm thankful that I have a house to live in, a car to drive around in, clothes to wear and food to eat.
I'm thankful that I can say sorry and ask forgiveness when I mess up (daily)!
I'm thankful that I started this post early and am now going to call it as finished as it will probably get before Thanksgiving and thence publish said post! And no I don't normally ever use the word thence, but for some reason it popped on the screen as I typed!
Praying that everyone has a wonderful, enjoyable, yummy, conflict free Thanksgiving!

I enjoyed reading that. Simple but totally to the point! You have a lucky family to have such fond thoughts related to them :):):) xxx.
