Let\’s just wrap this Thankful Thing up already…
Don\’t get me wrong. I have many, many things to be thankful for. And I do give thanks on a daily basis. I\’m just not good about writing them down and sharing them in a timely manner. When I forget, I feel like a failure and I beat myself up, which doesn\’t seem to be in the spirit of the season. So, I\’m going to go on and just list the rest of the things I wanted to give thanks for, in no particular order.
Healthy, happy children
Wonderful friends, new and old
My extended family, made up of blood relatives, those who got stuck with me through marriage, and those who just love me
A beautiful, safe, welcoming home
All the material possessions I could possibly ask for
My grandmother\’s longevity. I wish she could be like her old self again, but I\’m glad she\’s here anyway.
Time to craft
Good books to read
Wonderful colleagues, parents, and students at TFCA
All the experiences- good, bad, and ugly- that have made me who I am today
The great gift of salvation
I think that wraps it up. And look at me, I\’ve finished up before the end of the month. I\’m not catching up, I\’m working ahead.
