On this Thanksgiving eve 2012 I share with you my post from Thanksgiving eve 2009. My gratitude and thanks for each grow daily. I am blessed beyond measure.
Give Thanks To The Lord For He Is Good...
On this day before Thanksgiving a few things I'm thankful for...
God's never ending love.
The Senor - he amazes me daily with his love, support, kind heart and sense of humor. With him I have learned it is possible to fall deeper in love each and every day.
The tradition of making cornbread dressing with Dede which has now been passed along to Mom, Sandra, McKae and me.
Family - the one I was born to and the one I married.
The Armed Forces of the United States of America.
Taylor, McKae and Cate have never had to go without health care and have never been truly hungry or thirsty.
Friends from Mrs. Curry's Kindergarten, Elementary school, Intermediate school, Junior high school, High school, the twenty-somethings, the thirty-somethings, the forty-somethings and those who have spanned some or all of those times. What blessings they are.
Eating raw cornbread dressing with Mom, Sandra and McKae.
The honor of being a Mimi and a Step-Monster.
Health care, health insurance and access to the medication needed to treat my illness.
I was born in to a family who lives in a country where there is freedom of religion, freedom of speech and where human injustice is against the law.
I was diagnosed with a chronic illness and not a terminal illness.
My parents. They love me unconditionally. Through example they taught me the value of work ethic, respect for self, respect for God and respect for others.
And of course, I can't forget the cornbread dressing!
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his steadfast love endures forever. Psalm 107:1
