I'm Thankful...

.....for the current sickness in our house....

because it has helped remind us to be ever appreciative of our normally good health.



.....for NOT having television.....

because it has given us the gift of time with each other.



.....for the few extra pounds around my middle....

because it means we certainly are not lacking for food in our home.



.....for the zoo that will by my in-laws' house at Thanksgiving, with over 30 people attending.....

because I know there are many who spend this day alone, with no family to surround them.



.....for the fact that I came from what the world would call a "broken" home (though, it never seemed broken in any way to me at the time).....

because now, I really know the value of keeping my family together.



.....for the times I want to pull my hair out when my children are just NOT getting a concept I am trying to teach them....

because it makes it that much sweeter once they finally own that concept for themselves, and put it into practice without Mommy's prompting.



.....for Cameron shouting "poop" in the middle of Wal-Mart...

because that word was preceded by the sentence, "P says 'puh', like.....Poop!" and it means all our phonics lessons are really sinking in.



I'm thankful--to the Lord, of course, from Whom all blessings come--for all the little things and all the big things.


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
