I am THANKFUL that I have a job for the time being. It may not be my ideal job but it is a job. There are so many people still looking for employment. I am THANKFUL I am not one of them. I see the signs where my company is headed and I am THANKFUL I recognize it so I can prepare. I am THANKFUL my supervisor is appreciative of all that I do and she recognizes it as well.
I am THANKFUL we had overtime this year available. Having overtime has created less stress for me on buying Christmas gifts and will assist on paying my medical bills. I am thrilled they will be paid off by the end of the year.
I am THANKFUL my husband still has his job and I am super THANKFUL the older 4 children all have a job still and those living away are now paying their own bills.
I am THANKFUL for the most part my health is still good. I have had a few scares this year and it all comes down to stress as the cause. I need to figure a way to minimize this some. Paying my medical bills will help. I am THANKFUL that my children and step children are healthy as well.
I am THANKFUL the doctors were finally able to diagnose my niece this year. We still do not know the full out come of quality or how long of a life she will have but at least we now know what is in stored. She is such a happy girl for all the difficulties she has and will have to continue to go through. I am THANKFUL she does not know what she is missing in life that would break my heart.
I am THANKFUL we had a bountiful year in our garden this summer and I get to spread the goodies with our families this Christmas.
I am THANKFUL that you took the time out of your busy day to read my post.
I am THANKFUL that I know there is a GOD and that HE loves me. I may be tried and tested at times but he is always there for me, sometimes carrying me just like the poem "Footprints In the Sand"
|One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.|
|Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.|
|In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.|
|Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,|
|other times there were one set of footprints.|
|This bothered me because I noticed|
|that during the low periods of my life,|
|when I was suffering from|
|anguish, sorrow or defeat,|
|I could see only one set of footprints.|
|So I said to the Lord,|
|"You promised me Lord,|
|that if I followed you,|
|you would walk with me always.|
|But I have noticed that during|
|the most trying periods of my life|
|there have only been one|
|set of footprints in the sand.|
|Why, when I needed you most,|
|you have not been there for me?"|
|The Lord replied,|
|"The times when you have|
|seen only one set of footprints,|
|is when I carried you."|
