Slice 14 March 14, 2012 I'm Thankful For ...

What I'm thankful for...

I'm thankful I live in a free country
to have a home I can go to
freedom to worship
a husband to love and that loves me

I'm thankful for two children that I love
and their spouses, my adopted children, I love
with four exuberant grandsons
who shower me with kisses and hugs

I'm thankful for sunshine and rain
blue skies and shadows that cool me
sparkling snow and the gentle wind that blows
flowers that bloom for my enjoyment

I'm thankful for men & women
willing to fight for our country
leave their families and conveniences
some sacrifice their own lives

I'm thankful for my parents
still living who gave up many luxuries
for their children so we could become
the people we are today

I'm thankful for a God
who blesses me each day
by being with me
no matter what I go through

I'm thankful for you...
thanks for stopping by to read my blog!
Happy Slicing! :)

  3. Isn't it great to have so much to be thankful for? And as you said, even when you have things you are going through, you can be thankful that you are not walking alone.
