Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving blog friends!

I really don't want to fill up this blog space today with a bunch of words or thoughts. I just want to take a few moments to publicly give thanks for...

My Savior - who died for me and loves me unconditionally and constantly pours out undeserved grace & mercy.
My Husband - who showers me with blessings, speaks words of adoration over me, and lets me know in even the subtlest of ways that I'm his girl
My Daughter - who brightens my day with her laughter, forgives my mistakes, and has gently taught me how a mother is to love her young for the last (almost) 13 years
My Friends - who show love, mercy, and kindness even when unsolicited and allow me to bare the depths of my soul while withholding judgment
My Church - that eagerly opens its doors to embrace the oppressed, the orphaned, and the widowed and has taught me how to worship in spirit and in truth
My Freedom - that enables me to worship openly, study God's Word visibly, and attend church freely
God's Word - that arms me with THE knowledge I need to get through each moment, each hour, each day, each week, each month, each year, and ONE lifetime
My Blog Readers - that continue to give me a reason for doing this "blogging" thing, that provide encouragement for me each step of the way of this journey and are willing to journey with me

What are you giving thanks for this day?
