As I begin this Thanksgiving week I realize that I am truely thankful for all that God has blessed me.
I am thankful for the love of wonderful loving family that He gave me. From my husband, children, grandchildren, to all my extended relations, I have been very, very blessed.
I am thankful for my job that I enjoy going to each day. I got it when I was at one of my lowest self confidence times and didn’t think anyone would want to hire me due to my age. I have excelled in the position and my confidence has raised.
I am thankful for the home God has provided us. It is in a safe, nice neighborhood in the beautiful Northwest. On a regular basis, I look around as I am driving and say “Thank you God for this beauty”.
I am thankful for electricity and heat. My daughter has been without for a week due to a winter storm. She and her 2 babies have been sleeping on friends couches to keep warm. Here in the states, we take our comfort too much for granted.
I am thankful I live in the United States where we have the freedoms that we have at this time. I am thankful for the military that keeps us safe.
I am thankful for having the opportunity to join the alliance of MKMMA. It has been an eye opening experience. I have had growth in spite of my stubborness. I am actually starting to not compare myself to others. Its hard to know what is “doing my best” or just doing. I have always been told all my life that I “could do better than that”. It was meant as an encouragment but it had the opposite effect. I realize now that I can be what I will to be. It isn’t a matter of good enough.
Most of all I am thankful for a Creator who has called me by name. Who has known me since before time began. Who has loved me and gave His Son for me so that when this life is done and I have fulfilled my purpose here, that I can have eternal life with Him.
May you all be richly blessed this Thanksgiving season and for years to come! Happy Thanksgiving!
