Thankful For....

Thursday, November 27, 2008

I'm thankful to God for my wonderful family (my husband, my kids, mom, dad, my sister and her wonderful family). Thankful for the awesome friends I have in my life. Thankful for their health and happiness. Thankful in spite of my condition, I can still get out and do more than I even think I can do at times. Thankful for SparkPeople and the Sparktastic people and friends I've met. May you have a blessed holiday.

Be Blessed & Be a blessing...
I’m thankful for each strand of hair
That grows upon my head
I’m thankful for the clothes I wear
And for a nice warm bed.

I’m thankful for the caring friends
Who make me feel so glad
I’m thankful for a doctor’s care
When I am feeling bad.

I’m thankful for my family
Who cheer me when I’m blue
I’m thankful for the U.S.A.
And for our soldiers too.

I’m thankful for the gentle rains
That fall upon the earth
I’m thankful for the life it brings
And for a baby’s birth.

I’m thankful for a sky of red
In early morning light
I’m thankful for the setting sun
And for the stars at night.

I’m thankful for a place to pray
And for the books I read
I’m thankful for a loving God
Who meets my every need.
