Today is Thanksgiving. It is also the day after my fifteenth wedding anniversary.
I feel amazed by the things God has given me.
I’m thankful, so very thankful, for all these special gifts:
Thankful for my life. Thank you Jesus for the gift of another sunrise (or rainy Florida twilight-sunrise).
Thank you for my husband. As a girl, I dreamed of a boy who would love me and cherish me like most little girls do… the man I have is way better! (God’s reality was far better than anything in my dreams.)
Thank you for our children. Christina, who made me a mom; Rebeccah who was caught by both grandmothers; Kimberly, our bouncy sunshine; Jaquline, whom Grandma Honey called “Little Louie Jack”; Jillian, our nature loving discoverer; and Lucas, our thoughtful problem solver.
Thank you for our family. Our parents (who raised us), siblings (who put up with us), new sisters and brothers (who decided to join our crazy fun families), nieces and nephews (the bonuses for allowing our siblings to live).
Thank you for others who inspired, encouraged, and befriended us in our journey.
Thank you for the struggles, accomplishments, heartbreaks, and excitements that have shaped our life into the beautiful, wonderful thing it is. Together. I thank you, God, that we are together!
Here’s hoping everyone enjoys their family and friends this day and every day.
Thanks for reading!
