There is so much trouble in the world today; across the sea with other countries and across our nation with our neighbors. I have many feelings and comments I could express regarding Vladimir Putin, the craziness going on with the Michael Brown incident, and Obama. However, I will keep my comments to my self as they are brutally honest, direct, and some could consider them hurtful. Sometimes truth hurts. Nonetheless, I AM THANKFUL!
I am thankful that I live in America! Although we have a country who is in turmoil and profusely bleeding, I believe America will regain her beauty and can heal from the torture and illness that has been imposed upon her.
I am thankful for my family. States span between us but the miles cannot diminish our love for one another. We will always be aunts, cousins, uncles, nephews, grandparents, nieces, and in-laws. WE ARE FAMILY and for that I am thankful.
I am thankful for my kids! God has blessed me with children who are kind, considerate, loving, compassionate, goofy, fun, vibrant, different, and genuine. Whatever they choose to call me, I am honored to be their momma, mom, madre, ma, and mother.
I am thankful for all the friends who have come (and some gone) into or from my life and our relationships. Each one of them has left an impression, given me inspiration to do more, or encouraged me on some level. I am who I am because of my family and friends, past and present.
I am thankful for my health. As I near the big 5-0 mark in life, what I consider to be the TOP of the hill, I realize how I could have been worse for the wear on so many levels. I thank God for my health.
I am thankful to live in a country where we will not be persecuted for proclaiming our faith and that many faiths are practiced.
I am thankful God has awoken my desire to share stories and our life’s adventures.
And, lastly…I am thankful for my supporters. Thank you!
For what are you THANKFUL?
