Being grateful

Thanksgiving is almost here. This is the time of year that I LOVE most...the beginning of the Holiday season. It means eating a ton of great food, gaining about 5 pounds, hanging out with family and friends, seeing a newly released movie in the theater.(A tradition of ours.) It's a holiday that reminds us to count our many blessings, and be thankful for all we have. I'm grateful for so many things.

1-I’m grateful for a wonderful husband that supports me and my dreams. And for my three amazing children. Life is nothing if you don’t have family.

2-I'm grateful to live in a country where we can express ourselves and have freedom of religion.

3-Friends, I don't know what I'd do without the gift I've been given of good friends. They keep me going.

4- I’m grateful for my body. It may not be perfect, and yes, it has its problems, but I can walk, hop, skip and run if I want to. My hands can touch and feel, my eyes can see, my ears can hear, my mouth can speak, and confess those things that are close to my heart.
5- Life is wonderful and I probably could live without this next one, but I'm grateful I don't have to. I'm extremely grateful for modern connivances, such as running water, heat, flipping on a light switch and having light.
