What I'm Thankful For

First of all I'm thankful for my parents who loved me and took me to church every Sunday and brought me up to love God. I'm thankful that I grew up in a different time and less stressful time than the one we live in now--even though our country was at war.

I'm thankful for my husband who I fell for way back when I was seventeen and has put up with me for 59 years of married life. I'm thankful that he's willing to do all the things that I like to do and is such a strong supporter of my writing.

I'm thankful for my five children and thankful that we had Mark for as long as we did. I'm thankful that I know he's in heaven and I'll see him again one day.

I'm thankful that I live in America.

I'm thankful for all that I've been able to do and see over the years.

I'm thankful for all the talents that God has given me.

I'm thankful that we have enough to share with those who are less fortunate.

I'm thankful for our little church and our church family.

I'm thankful for all my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

And on this particular Thanksgiving Day, I'm thankful that I'm not the cook and thankful to my youngest daughter who is doing the cooking.

I'm thankful for the part of the family that hubby and I are sharing the day with.

And I'm thankful for all the blessings God has bestowed upon me during my life.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Marilyn
