Sometimes, I wonder if one can really grasp "thankfulness" until they have been without or until they have seen others go through tough times. I seem to realize the meaning more as I am older. Our family has been through some changes in the last couple of years and I believe my children can understand "thankful" more now.
These are a few of the many things I am thankful for, not in any order:
I am so looking forward to visiting with family this Thanksgiving.
It will be so nice to travel "back home" to familiar roads and sites!
We have a nice, warm and dry house.
We have plenty of food to eat. I am thankful for this, even though sometimes I complain about the increase in pricing, God still provides for us.
My husband is my best friend and is so supportive to me and our family.
My children are healthy, smart and kind.
We are able to homeschool.
We have great friends.
We live in the United States. It is not perfect, but we have many freedoms that others do not.
I am thankful for Facebook and the Internet which allows me to stay in touch with family and friends and make new friends!
I am thankful for the laughter of my children!
I enjoy seeing SarahAnne being crafty and how she is improving in the details.
