There is SO much...especially when watching the news which makes me aware that our wants and "needs" are so material in the face of those starving, homeless and persecuted people around the world.
My thanks today:
1) That Jesus loves and forgives me always 2) My wonderful family: husband, daughter and son 3) My dear friends 4) A great (and steady) job that pays more than I could have ever expected 5) Good health 6) A house that more than takes care of my needs 7) SparkPeople friends who help keep me motivated! 8) Baseball season is finally over (I'm a Cubs fan. What else do you need to know?)
this one is easy. 1. Jesus Christ 2.My 7 kids 3.My7 grandkids 4. My closer relationship with my sister 5. The people who keep me strong 6. The good health of my family and me. 7. job 8. home 9.faith that IT will be good
