Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope everyone is staying where it's warm and cozy, and I hope all of you are with people who are dear to you.
I am getting ready to party myself. Thanksgiving is as much a big deal in our family as Christmas. We work in the kitchen and cook/bake days before to get ready for the feast and the fellowship.
This year, life has been grand! All the prayers we said in the first of the year all have been answered with a "Yes!" I don't know if I could be anything else but grateful for everything and EVERYONE especially that we have been blessed with this year.
I am grateful, first and foremost for this wonderful husband I have been given. I don't know what I did right to deserve him, but he sure rocks! I love every piece of this human being... My life would be so dull if he didn't dance around shaking his moneymaker in front of my bathroom mirror while I am putting make up on... Or none of these DIY ideas would ever get done if he didn't take so much joy in turning his tools on.... Or I wouldn't have such a great, awesome, wonderful life if he didn't work so hard doing what he loves and does best... Teaching and Drumming! I am so grateful that he respects my thoughts, and don't just shrugs his shoulders and walks off when I say something.
I am thankful for family... both here and the one across the planet. I love them all. My only prayer is for them to stay healthy... all the rest is bonus!
Friends are a gift and I believe I have the best ones existing! We haven't gotten the chance to see them as much as we want this year because we all have been so busy both with work and family stuff. But these ones I have are just wonderful in every sense of the word. We are always together, in spirit and in prayer. I have never had friends who will pray for us and we pray for as much as them.
I am thankful for our church family. I've been and met a few of them in my lifetime, but this one I've had for at least 3 years has been great! I have never enjoyed doing ministry so much until I started working with everyone in this church and I don't believe any other church family can top this one. :)
Last but certainly not least, I am thankful for the God that I worship. He is the source of all that I am grateful for every day. He truly makes all things beautiful for me and all the people I love. He is the reason why I am here and He is the reason I love like I do, because HE LOVED ME FIRST.
So there you have it! How about you? What are you thankful for?
