What greater blessing to give thanks for at a family gathering than the family and the gathering.
You've heard me say it many times, but I am truly thankful for my family.
This week I'm blessed by a visit from DS#4 and his family. I'm so thankful they could make it home. I've not seen them since May of last year.
The past weekend I was able to spend time with DS#1 and his family and DD and her family. I finally made it to the camper for 4 wonderful days. The weather couldn't have been more perfect either and that was something to be thankful for. When you are in a place that you spend most of the time outdoors, weather is very important.
We have had many happy occasions to gather as a family this year and celebrate. Thankfully they were all happy times and for that I am thankful. Having happy times to celebrate help to make the hard times not quite so hard. Together as a family we've had to go through some very tough times. I'm thankful too, that although I live a lone I always have their love and support.
I'm thankful that my daughter and her new baby are doing wonderfully. DD's hubby has embraced becoming a dad and is changing diapers like a champ!
I've been so blessed to be a mom and my family keeps me going time and time again through the good times and the bad.
In our life, we sometimes spend too much time complaining about the things we do not like or have. Today and every day we need to take time to be thankful for the blessings we do have
I am a thankful person and my blessings are many. I can only hope that your Thursday is one you can be thankful for too!
