Thanksgiving Blessings....A little Late!!!

I hope that everyone has enjoyed their Thanksgiving today. I am posting rather late because it has been a day of "un-relaxation" with my mom and I in the kitchen all day! Lets just say that dinner went off just fine and now I am on to the more sentimental side of Thanksgiving....

Today I am so truly thankful for so many things.I have been blessed in so many ways.
For my creator who still sees hope in me, even when I am doubtful.
I am thankful for the wonderful country I live in, and for all its many heroes.
I am thankful for my wonderful husband, children, family and friends.
They are my greatest blessings.
I am thankful for all the people and creatures that are put on earth for us all.
They teach us so much, unconditional love, loyalty, and understanding.
I ask that all who suffer with illness have this day free from pain.
I am thankful for all who have tables filled with food and someone to share it with.
And for those that have no family or food, Lord, I ask that You comfort them.
I am thankful for the time I had with my loved ones that have gone on to be with You.
They shall always be loved and greatly missed.
I am thankful for allowing me to have love, compassion, understanding,
and forgiveness in my heart.
It is these many blessings that make my humble life happy and fulfilled.

I always remember a particular bible verse on Thanksgiving. It is Psalm 107:1

"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever."
May you be Thankful not only on this day but for all the rest to come!
