What am I thankful for?
I’m thankful for an alarm clock….because that means I have a reason to get up in the morning.
I’m thankful for a child that cries if I leave the house without a hug…because that means I’m loved.
I’m thankful for a power bill…because that means I have heat and lights in my home.
I’m thankful when I forget my sunglasses and the sun is in my eyes….because that means I can see.
I’m thankful for God for touching those eyes…..so I can see people and situations as He sees them.
I’m thankful for my hospitals that call in the middle of the night….because that means I have a talent to share with families that have lost their precious child.
I’m thankful for a house payment….because that means I have a place to tuck my children in bed & keep my family safe.
I’m thankful for medical bills….because that means I have 5 beautiful children that are healthy.
I’m thankful for Playdough….because even though the smell brings back HORRID memories of cancer playrooms, my kids adore it and it makes them happy. (After years of being banned)
I’m thankful for that hound dog like nose….because it means I can smell the beauties of the earth too.
I’m thankful for whining, yes I said whining….because it means I can hear. Whining requires payback and that is “I love you mom!”
I’m thankful for my crooked back…because it still supports me and allows me to do what I love to do despite the pain.
I’m thankful for many more things….of which I won’t bore you. Please take a moment to think of those things you are truly thankful for. It’s the little things in life that make us who we are. Embrace them.
