I am Thankful for.....

  • A loving God who provides all that I need, including forgiveness and eternal life through his son, Jesus.
  • Parents who raised me to have values and always know that they loved me.
  • A husband who for the last 30 years has been my best friend, my companion, my lover, and my greatest supporter.
  • Michael and Zach who have given me much joy and opportunity to be a proud mom.
  • Amy and April who are the best daughter-in-loves a mom could ask for.
  • Drake and Adler, my precious grandboys, who give me hours of joy as I get to watch them grow and explore. They have the most beautiful smiles.
  • A brother who loves me and helps me care for my mom.
  • A beautiful home where I can be safe, relax, and create.
  • Abundance so that I may be healthy and strong so that I can serve others.
  • Friends who care for me, pray for me, laugh with me, and cry with me.
  • Talent, that I may use it to honor God.

I hope that you will take time to reflect on those things you are Thankful for. My prayer for you today is that you too, will realize how Truly Blessed you are.
