Thinking Thanks...

When my mind is filled with thanksgiving, I'm a happier person.

And there are so many blessings to think about, for which to give thanks. 

Here are a few (in no particular order):

Running water.
Electricity
A very comfortable bed in which to sleep.
A television with more channels than I can watch.
Taste buds.
A prince of a husband. (He's the best husband in all the world.) (Sorry, ladies.)
A wonderful son and a wonderful daughter, and they married wonderful spouses. (The best in all the world.) (Sorry, everybody else.)
A fantastic family of origin.
A mother who is still thriving. (She would say 'some days more than others'... but compared to her peers, she is, for sure, THRIVING.) (For sure.)

Those are just a few.
I'll list more later.

You be thinking of some, too.
If you'd like, you can leave a comment telling me of some that come to mind.
I'd love it.

I'm thankful for you too! For having two very supportive, fun, kind, easy-going parents who love Jesus. And I'm thankful to have married into a great family. I'm thankful I'm having fun student teaching--AND that it will be over in a month. I'm thankful for the holidays coming up because they are my favorite time of year.

That is a sampling of the many things I am thankful for :)

OH my gosh - taste buds!!! Definitely taste buds. I can't believe I've never thought of saying thanks for those little gems. That's the best, Nancy.

I echo everyone else - definitely thankful for you. Really.

Others - words and language, imagination, the music that orchestrates my life, flowers that bloom just to make me smile, sunshine, silence, my kitchen and the people who pass through it.
