While prepping things to get ready for a family Thanksgiving lunch today, I was reminded of how much I have to be thankful for.  I was greeted by this precious smile in the kitchen that was so happy to be awake and see me even tho I wasn’t planning on him getting up yet.  He needed some mommy help and I was able to give it and then get him and sister playing, hoping they wouldn’t wake up Daddy and big brother.  I was able to read my Bible and devotion this morning and for that I am thankful because many people do not have that privilege or even realize how precious the Word is.  I am so thankful that God loved me enough to send Jesus to die on the cross for me and thankful that Jesus loved us enough to do so.  I am thankful for my parents for loving us and raising us the best that they could and knew how.  I am thankful for my parents that I gained when I got married because they love me like their own too and I realize everyone is not that blessed.  I am thankful for all of my sisters and brothers whether by birth or by marriage- each one is a blessing in my life.  I am so thankful for my hardworking husband that loves the Lord with all his heart and because of that he can love me and kids the way we need for him too.  His patience amazes me, while I may get frustrated about whats going on with the kids or life in general, he will take the time to talk calmly to us and help us see things in a different light.  God knew what He was doing when He sent Joe to me!  I am so thankful for all 3 of our children, each one has their own unique, special personalities and are precious treasures to our family. I am thankful that God has shown me that each one is different and needs to be loved uniquely.

I have not began to cover all that I am thankful for, like a house to live in, a warm bed to sleep in, a car to drive, food to eat but I would encourage all of us to think of all that we have to be thankful for and let each other know what they mean to us.

Blessings to you and Happy Thanksgiving!
