Today, I am thankful for the many, many blessings that God grants me – there are too many to name in one month of giving thanks, and they last the entire year.
Today, I am thankful for Thanksgiving.
That sounds a little silly, I do realize. However, the holiday provides us with the opportunity to see many members of our families who we don’t see on a regular basis – despite the fact that almost all of us live relatively close to one another.
Oh, and the abundance of good food at those family gatherings doesn’t hurt.
Today, I am thankful for having the hookup on sweet invitations, postcards, etc. What that really means is that I’m thankful that my brother and his wife are willing to share their talents and make cool things for me. We end up with super awesome, custom designed birthday party invitations and other random things all the time. It’s awesome!
Do you need some paper goods? You really should check out their website, Sparkvites.
Today, I am thankful for the gift of writing.
It’s how I make my living; it’s how I communicate; and it’s something I enjoy.
Today, I am thankful for the two life groups Ben and I have been involved in through church.
Through those groups, I’ve met people who will be lifelong friends. They are perpetually kind, patient and generous of their time and talents.
Today, I am thankful for the many years of piano lessons that my parents paid for and drove me to.
Though I don’t currently have a piano or regularly practice playing, I am thankful for the musical background that it gave me. One day, I’d like to own a piano and give my children the same opportunity.
I fondly remember all those hours sitting beside Joanne LaRue, who so very patiently taught so many of us about the piano — even when it was quite obvious that I had practicing at the bottom of my list that week.
Today, I’m thankful for a flexible job that enables me to stay home when I need to.
Just this week, I stayed home to work on moving into my house, and I ended up having to stay home again to take care of my kids.
I appreciate having a job that understands family needs.
