I am finally getting a chance to post my Thanksgiving thoughts. I was pretty sick on Thanksgiving, the preceding and following days and couldn't muster the energy to sit down and type what I didn't need that day. But we are so grateful this Thanksgiving for our many blessings and it's so important we acknowledge all the good in our lives.

  • For my hubby's job and the good insurance that comes with the job - not everyone is so fortunate

  • For my two beautiful boys and my loving husband who make this journey so worth traveling

  • For my baby coming home from the hospital just in time for Thanksgiving

  • For our gracious friends who have helped us deal with all the medical chaos and help us take care of our older son we run out of possibilities

  • For the wonderful care at the children's hospital and all the nurses and doctors that take care of our son

  • For our friends who planned a Thanksgiving meal for us and brought it over as well as for our friends who invited us to join them in their celebrations

  • For such a loving and caring church community

  • For wonderful parents who do what they can to help us out, even across the miles

  • For all those who pray for us on a daily basis

  • For God taking care of our needs

  • For such loving families who stay in touch even though we are so far away

  • For the invention of wireless Internet (yes I am serious about this - I can still take on jobs even when my baby is in the hospital)

  • For all the beautiful children in our lives, including our children, godchildren and nieces and nephews - life wouldn't be as fun without them

  • For the little things that make a world of difference

  • For all that we have been blessed with

There is so much more, but those are the most important things right now. We are so blessed and we are so grateful we have been giving the abilities and opportunities we have in our lives.
