I am thank for my friend Jo.
I am thankful for the wise counsel of a great mom. Even at 55 a person needs their mom… well at least this one does.
I am thankful my son made to his place okay. He was smart and stopped at a rest area to sleep when he got tired. He was able to get AAA to get him to a mechanic when his car broke down. And I am grateful we have some credit to help him get his car back on the road.
I am thankful for a good lunch with my teen. Things have been tense between us. I hope that lunch helped and I hope she knows i love her to the moon and back. I would give my life for her (I feel like I give everything I am to her and to her siblings now, even though it is never enough). She is a miracle I prayed hard for… an answer to 2 1/2 years of fasting and praying weekly. She is amazing.
I am thankful I am finding the courage to write in a gratitude journal daily and for the opportunity to keep myself accountable through blogging, even if it is only a handful of people who read this. It keeps me from spiraling into some kind of pity party. It makes me see all the good god blesses me with daily.
I am thankful for a sweet little picture of a happy little grand daughter who got to try ballet class for the first time. She is a miracle too. I am grateful that she and her family live close enough for me to see every once in a while. Before they moved closer, I only got to see her once a year. I am looking forward to summer, when I won’t have work and can see her more often! I am also grateful for all the grand kids living close. They make me smile.
