Give Thanks

It's that time of year again. That time of year when there is an entire day devoted to giving thanks. Well, or maybe an entire day devoted to turkey, stuffing and football. ;) Be that as it may...
I endeavor to practice a spirit of gratitude and thankfulness daily, and especially at this time of year I meditate on what I am thankful for. So, once again, as inspired by a friend, my 4th annual Thanksgiving list.
Simply some of the things I am very thankful for:

  • Hope.
  • For Jesus.
  • My washer and dryer.
  • DVR
  • A simple warm house.
  • Forgiveness. 
  • A really good meal when I am truly good and hungry.
  • Warm sun in the middle of winter.
  • A good outdoor fire.
  • Laughter!
  • A good book, comfy chair, and coffee at Barnes & Noble.
  • Kind co-workers.
  • My little brothers who always had my back and treated me like a queen.
  • Generosity and genuineness.
  • Music: playing, singing, listening.
  • For a few true and loyal friends.
  • My son. He has brought only joy to me since his first moments.
  • My health.
  • I'm thankful for my partner.
  • My TDI that gets 40mpg.
