Counting My Blessings

Happy thanksgiving! I hope you have a blessed day, full of family, friends, cheer, and good food! I am enjoying time with family and counting the many ways in which we are fortunate, including:

- A home with a solid roof over our heads.

- Love of family and friends.

- Jobs that provide food for our table, cars to transport us, and items both essential and not.

- Love of family and friends (some blessings, you count twice).

- Fond memories of those who can no longer be with us.

- Excellent food.

- Healthy bodies, hearts, minds, and souls.

-  Pets, because life is happier with furry friends.

- Opportunities for education, and the ability to provide them to our children.

- Children with kind hearts and generous spirits and the absolute privilege of having been allowed to parent them.

- Modern technology, for allowing us to feel closer to those far away.

-  Good, strong cups of coffee.

- Chocolate.

- Freedom.

- A connection to God, without Whom, we would have no blessings to count.

Happy thanksgiving!
