Thankful

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on November 27, 2008

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I truly have so much for which to be thankful.

I am thankful for my God and the blessings He has given me in my wonderful and hard working husband, my spunky and energetic kiddos, my wonderful family, my fun and and caring friends… YOU!

I am thankful that I am free to worship, free to speak, free to live and sing and dance!

I am thankful for the rain, the cool breeze, and the roof over our heads, comfy clothes to keep us warm, and good food.

I am thankful for laughter, for joy, for innocence and good times.

Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving Day!!

I am so thankful for my children. During my daily activities, it’s so easy to take these beautiful miracles for granted. I just hope that as they grow, I don’t make too many mistakes along the way. I know I will b/c no one is perfect, but I hope the successes far outweigh the not-s0-successful!
