What I am Most Thankful For

This is a big time for people to announce every year what they are most thankful for. My blog post today is dedicated to that same topic, however, I can honestly tell you that I am thankful every single day for my family. I feel a twinge of sadness every morning when I leave my family after only briefly seeing them awake, and extreme excitement those first few moments when I see them again. I am thankful for smiles that show the same excitement on Colin and Kailey's face when I get to school to pick them up and on their faces when their Daddy walks into a room. I am thankful.

I am so thankful for my family and could.not.imagine. my life to be any different. They fill my heart with so much love...

I am thankful for my family, my friends and for all of my friends from blogland, most of whom I have never met, but I feel like are my old friends.

I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving...

What is my prayer of thankfulness?
I thank You, Lord . . .
For having a warm place to stay.
For having enough food to eat.
For having an abundance of clothing.
For giving me friends.
For giving me kind words to say.
For peace in the knowledge I belong to you.
For loving me unconditionally.
For your patience with me.
For the assurance that I'm going to heaven.
For the courage to not look at things as they are, but instead to look at things from God's perspective.
For your assurance that I can give all my cares and burdens to you.
For always being there to hear my prayers.
For answering some I haven't even said yet.
For making my cup to runneth over with joy when there's absolutely no natural reason for it.
Thank you.
