Giving Thanks!

Today I just want to say THANKS because I'm just feeling so thankful for life,

family, friends, good health (ok, I still have weight to lose, but otherwise I'm healthy),

writing, books, homeschooling, homeschool co-op, my dogs, my cat,

the beautiful blue sky day we're having here after a week of gray.

I am so thankful for all of that, and for everything I see around me . . . salt, pepper, glue sticks, pens, a green sweatshirt, table, chairs, pc - ok this is mundane, but you get the idea, I am thankful for everything in my life, even the mess.

Praise God from whom All blessings flow!

When we realize that EVERYTHING is a gift, the smallest item or favor becomes a blessing. What an uplifting post, Tyrean!

Thanks, Tyrean! I am glad you are feeling thankful. I needed that reminder right now.

E.R. King - Thanks! There are days when I have to work at thankfulness, and days when I just am amazed at the blessings in my life.

Alex - Hot Tamales? Like the food, or is this code for something else?

Pam - Thanks! I agree, every little thing is a gift to us, and usually is stuff we've done nothing to deserve.

Angie - You're welcome! I hope that thankfulness fills your day today . . .
