This is the end of Thanksgiving weekend. I’ve been reflecting on the many blessings I have in my life; all the things I have to be thankful for. This blog post would be pages long if I tried to put all of them to words, so I have decided to sum them up with a picture blog.
First, I am thankful for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who created all that is, and ever will be. I am thankful for Jesus who died on the cross for my sins that I might have eternal life.
Second, I am thankful for my country, the land of the free, because of the brave. I am thankful I was able to be raised in a country with freedoms, and values, and privileges so many are not fortunate enough to know.
Third, I am thankful for the family I was lucky enough to be born into. I could not have hoped for better parents. They were both so kind, loving, nurturing, and encouraging. My sister was my friend, and still is. She is always in my heart and mind. They gave me the foundation I built my own family on.
Fourth, I am thankful for my husband, the lifestyle we have been able to live, and the family that we created. My husband is my best friend, my soul mate, and partner on this walk we call life. Our children have filled my heart and life with more joy and blessings than any woman deserves.
And lastly, I am thankful for the families my three beautiful children have created. I have been blessed with one more daughter, and two more sons that I have learned to love as my own. And those grandbabies…..oh how I love them all! My heart is so full. God is so good. I am so blessed.
These are the things that I am grateful for. These are my blessings and treasures. These are the things for which I give God thanks.
