Lots To Be Thankful For


As we edge closer to the end of October, the beginning of November and the Thanksgiving holidays, it's so good to be thankful.

Today when I saw a gigantic American flag at the top of a flag pole, fluttering in the wind and sunlight, it made me so thankful for freedom.

Despite everything that's wrong with this country, there's so much that is right and for those things, I am deeply thankful.

For all the gifts I often take for granted----a blossoming African violet plant on the kitchen windowsill;  the eager face of my beautiful little granddaughter when she lifts her arms in the air for me to pick her up;  and the sweet gentleness of our very old Honey Cat, I am thankful.

For my husband of many decades, still kind, loving and hard working, I am deeply thankful.

For eyesight, good health,  sweet memories, and hope for the future, my heart fills with thanks.

For faith in God, who provides it all and who treats His children with a Father's immense and never ending love, I am thankful.

For you, the person reading this post right now, I am soooooo thankful.  You are my inspiration and my impetus to continue writing!

Today, I hope you will feel your heart bursting with thanks, too, just to be alive on this incredible planet earth!

LOOK AROUND WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW AND NAME SOMETHING YOU SEE FOR WHICH YOU ARE THANKFUL.

I am sitting at my computer desk right now, and thinking how thankful I am to have YOU as a blog friend, Susan.

Your post is beautiful today, and certainly one of my favorites so far.

Love,

I thank God for you Susan to help me focus on what is Good, I thank God for my wonderful family and the beautiful place I live, and I humbly thank God that I heard His call and responded - why me??? Have a very blessed day.

I am thankful for everything you said - you wrote everything so wonderfully - and your picture was beautiful too. I liked the one especially for America right now. Next I am grateful for being able to worship the real God and then my family and friends. Have a good Sunday. sandie
