What are you thankful for?
I count my blessings every day. There have been too many to count or list. Whether large or small, they’re all important.
Thanksgiving is a special day to listen to my heart and be thankful for what God has given me. I’m thankful for everything, but most of all, for His love.
My family means the world to me. We’re a large family and sometimes there may be squabbles, misunderstandings and rifts. But in the long-run, those issues are worked out.
We’re family after all.
What family doesn’t have their problems? I don’t know of any that hasn’t had difficulties at one time or another. My family is no different.
When there are struggles to deal with and I have no answer, that’s when I have to let go of what I can’t control, because we can’t control other people. We can only be true to ourselves, forgive and forget.
Then we can move forward.
It’s a special time to remember loved ones who are no longer with us, and be thankful we were blessed to have them for the time we did. Those memories will last a lifetime.
Here are a few things I’m also thankful for.
Tough upbringing, because it made me strong
Hugs when my heart was weary
Angels to watch over me
Kindhearted, because kindness builds up others
Freedom of worship
I wish you and your family the best. That you have wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. Enjoy time with your loved ones on this special day.
