I am sitting here at work waiting for the last few hours to go by. Later this morning we will start our thanksgiving preparation. The house will smell good with baked rolls and pumpkin pie. As I reflect on what I am truely thankful for I realize that the Lord has really blessed me. I have 5 wonderful children. They are good and honest people. They are caring and wonderful parents. What else can I ask for. They have turned out like I would like them to. We have children to let them go and see what they become. Sure there are bumps along the way but this helps us to grow. I look now to the future to see my family grow, to see some of the traditions contine and to also create new ones. I love my grandbabies so much. They are easier to enjoy because the responsibility to train and guide them are up to their parents. I do add a few suggestions now and then. I love my life and am thankful for all that I have been blessed with.
Last night I was awake in the wee hours of the morning as I usually am. I was listening to a church program that caught my attention. The jist of it was that it is very hard to be down and discouraged when you count your blessings. So I thought about what are my blessings. They are too many to count or list here, but I am very lucky to have the blessings that I have. So the point is that if you are down or discouraged, count your blessings and " it will surprize you what the Lord has done."
