It’s that time of year where everyone talks about how thankful they are though we are thankful everyday of the year.

I can’t hardly believe It’s Thanksgiving already!  But I also can’t believe I have actually gottten 80% of my Christmas shopping finished and I haven't even had any turkey yet! This means I can spend less time shopping during the holidays and more time reflecting on the things that matter, such as family time, dinners, trips to see Christmas lights, and gatherings with friends.

I am thankful for so much.

I am thankful to have Jesus in my heart and soul. I am a believer, I am saved. 

I am thankful for for my daughter. While the doctors told me I would most likely never have children, I had a perfect one (well almost perfect to me). Shes has never given us a problem other than a little back talk. I am blessed. I am thankful.

Though I complain about work and the type of people I have to work with, I am thankful that I have a job. I get a paycheck thats big enough to get me to the next paycheck. 

I’m thankful I have a husband that loves me unconditionally. I never want for anything. I am also thankful that he fixes my coffee each morning for work and makes sure my car is warmed up before I face the cold roads.

I am thankful for my loving Christian family. We all get along, go to church and pray for each other. I have a mom, dad, two brothers and a sisters. 

I am thankful I have a nice home. Its not much but its not little. We do not have fancy things and most of our furniture was given to us. But It’s warm, it’s cozy and the refrigerator is full. 

I am thankful that I can say I’m thankful. 

I know there are so many out there without any of these things. The things we take for granted would be like gold to them. Some are struggling beyond what we can imagine. I pray that they can find something to be thankful for and know there is hope. 

What are some things you are thankful for?

  5. What a sweet post of THANKFUL! Oh yes we all have so much for which to be thankful. Family and friends are top of the list. Thankful for HIM, of course. For us, at our ages, we are thankful we can continue to live a lifestyle that suits us and visit a doctor every year or so.

  8. Wonderful thankful post. I love that quote!!
    I think once we learn the difference between what we need and what WE WANT, it is easy to be thankful for what we have.
    I'm most thankful to Jesus for my salvation because without that nothing else would matter.

  9. I am thankful for many many blessing HE showers on me every day. I am most thankful that Jesus loves me.
