On this Thanksgiving Day, I take time to reflect on the things in my life that I am thankful for.
For my husband, Phil, who has brought so much joy to my life;
For my beautiful daughters, Sarah, Emily, and Katie Grace, who give me such a great purpose in my life;
For my cat, Bella, who loves me and keeps my feet warm at night;
For the clothes on my back, the food in my belly, and the warm house I live in;
For my best friends, Ann and Michelle, who are the sisters my parents never gave me;
For my parents who are always there to help me out, and who believe in me;
For my church which gives me such a welcoming family to worship with;
For my good health, and the good health of my family;
For my friends, my family, and my good neighbors, who each enrich my life in their own special ways;
Thank you, Jesus, for all of these blessings, and for all of the wonderful blessings you still have in store for me. Amen.
