I'm Thankful...

~that even though I'm not going home for Thanksgiving, I still get to spend it with family. One of the miracles of marriage is that your husband becomes your family the moment you say "I do!".

~that even though I miss him, I have peace because my Dad is in Heaven.

~that my Dad lived to be at my wedding and to meet his first grandson.

~for my Mom. She loves me so much, and I'm so glad we get along so well. 

~for my sister, who is also my best friend.

~for Annie, who is my other bestie.

~for harmony in my life.

~for the chance to have visited my dear friends in Spain this year.

~for Hubs' new job (more on that soon).

~for the birth of my nephew Sam this year! I never knew auntiehood could be so wonderful. I'll never be the same again!

~for the past three years in Southern California. I always wanted to live where it's springtime all year round, and I have to say, it's pretty great!

~for having been in a play this year and for the film/tv opportunities I've had.

~for my relationship with Jesus, whose love and forgiveness makes life beautiful.

~for the cool air outside.

~for a new President-Elect, who seems to be humble and approaching his new role with wisdom.

~for friends, with whom I'll get to spend my Thanksgiving.

Father in Heaven,

Thank you for the blessings you have given us this year. You are good.

Amen.

What a lovely list. You do indeed have much to be thankful for. :)

Your post reminded me of Dear Abby's Thanksgiving prayer, which was in the paper yesterday:

O heavenly Father:

We thank thee for food and remember the hungry.

We thank thee for health and remember the sick.

We thank thee for friends and remember the friendless.

We thank thee for freedom and remember the enslaved.

May these remembrances stir us to service

That thy gifts to us may be used for others. Amen.
