Being Grateful

Friday, November 16, 2012

I am grateful this day that the Good Lord woke me up in my right mind, I have a brand new roof over my head, a car in the driveway, food in my refrigerator, family and friends that care about me, poodles that love me unconditionally.

I realize that this isn't the most wonderful time of the year for a lot of people. Holidays can bring pressure to perform, feelings of loneliness, feelings of depression and sadness. I struggle from time to time in dealing with my Mom not being here on this earth, missing her smile, her laughter, hearing her voice. I know she would be in full force around the holidays preparing things for her grandchildren. I have to remind myself she is whole, healthy and happy with Jesus in heaven and one day I will see her again. For that, I am truly grateful.

    Yes, there are sad times & happy times in our lives & we always miss those who have gone before us to be with the Lord. Thank you for reminding us to daily count our blessings, Kelly. God is good & deserves to receive our praise & thanksgiving. TYL!
