Today I am thankful for…

Today, as we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the U.S., I thought I would list some of the many things I am thankful for. In no particular order…

  1. The depth and breadth of God’s love for me.  It takes my breath away.
  2. My husband –  for his consistent pursuit of ‘Love God. Love others’. And for his faithful love and care of me for 29 years (24 married + 5 dating).
  3. Mobility – I may not be in the best shape, but I’m so thankful that I can move around pain-free.
  4. My parents (mine and Mike’s) who have always been my greatest cheerleaders.  They show me daily what sacrificial love looks like.
  5. Friends who enrich my life in a million different ways.  You know who you are.
  6. My nieces and nephews – I think I have the BEST collection of nieces and nephews ever.  I love them all to pieces.
  7. My dogs.  Ones who have passed and those currently sitting at my feet.  Life is just brighter with them in it.
  8. My hairdresser – She has been cutting my hair for 30 years.  You can say we’ve sort of grown up together.
  9. My brothers and sisters (mine and Mike’s) – who we’ve watch grow into fantastic adults.  Love these guys.
  10. This blog – this experience has enriched my life in ways that have surprised me and humbled me.
  11. My pastor – such a blessing for our church and a good friend.
  12. My digital camera – so fun to be able to capture life without being concerned about cost.
  13. My home – we have shelter and warmth.  That’s a lot.
  14. Friends who trust me to care for their dogs.
  15. My laptop – a tool with infinite possibilities.
  16. Running, clean water – We support kids who live in parts of Africa where this isn’t a reality.
  17. My grandpa – so thankful that we talk every Monday.
  18. This transition time of life – the excitement, the challenge, the unknown.
  19. Knitting – I marvel at what can be produced with two sticks and a piece of string.
  20. My Shop Vac – makes cleaning so much easier.

What are you thankful for today? 

“I’m thankful for Woody, treats, snuggling with you at night, treats, breakfast, lunch, dinner, treats, playing catch, treats, long walks, treats, helping Mike in the yard, treats, friends to play with, treats, chewing bones, treats, sitting in the sun, treats…”
