Thankful


The Girls

These ladies one of the best parts of my life.  They are just part of what I’m thankful for.

I’m very blessed and I know it.  Regrettably I don’t tell folks that enough. I complain about circumstances way too often.  To help that, here’s a few of the things I’m thankful for.

  • my salvation – ask me some time
  • my wife – my biggest blessing on earth
  • my granddaughters – shown above
  • their mother/my daughter-in-law – she rocks and does a great job for the girls
  • my sons – through thick and thin
  • my worldly success – in spite of myself
  • my online success – again, in spite of myself
  • all the wonderful people I’ve met online and off this year – you all rock!
  • the gift of a touch of genius/madness – the blessing I struggle the most with
This year has been one of the most interesting of my life.  That was my only New Year’s resolution, to have a most interesting year.  Each of you in my life has contributed to that in some way. Give yourself a hug or pat on the back as you feel appropriate.
I’m not sure what I could ask for that I need but don’t have.  Oh, there’ll be things under the tree for Christmas, but this year I’ll be happy just to have some peace of mind.  For next year I’m asking for direction.
Again, I’m thankful for all of these blessings and more, and for even being able to look forward to a ‘next year’.  What are you thankful for this year?  Can you be thankful for just knowing you have a future to hope against? I am.
Cheers folks. May the Lord give you what you need and more.
