I am Thankful

I can never begin to tell all of the things that I am thankful for. The list is unending and gladness comes into my heart as I sit and think about so many of the things.

I am Thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who loved me so much that He provided a way for me to spend eternity with Him. I am thankful for Jesus who made it possible.

I am Thankful for my family. The one that I grew up in, my parents, sisters, brothers and the grandparents and Aunts and Uncles. So many happy memories were made spending Thanksgiving Days with them.

I am Thankful for my husbend, the Rancher and the family that we have. Our Children, their spouses, grandchildren and each one as they join our family circle. They have each brought something special into my life.

I am Thankful for my friends, the ones who have passsed through and gone on and the ones that have remained a part of my life throughout the years. Each one was there at the right time.

I am Thankful for my Church, the community that I live in and the people who make it what it is.

I am Thankful that I live in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. It is my country and I am proud. I cannot imagine living anywhere else.

I am Thankful that I live in this desolate land of the Panhandle and can look out and see the sunrises and sunsets that God so lovingly paints in the sky.

I am Thankful for the cardinals that are feeding at the feeder and the quail on the ground.

Does this sound boring. I could just go on and on but the list is unending.

Count your blessing this week instead of your sorrows and woes and you will know that you too are truely blessed and have so much to be Thankful for.
