Thankful

We have so much to be THANKFUL for today (and every day).  Sometimes it’s easy to take all the blessings for granted when there are so many.

I think a lot about Mothers in other countries (and our own) who struggle every day to feed their children.  I can’t imagine how frustrating and sad it would be to see your child go hungry.

I think a lot about the Mothers who have children fighting for their lives in hospitals all across the world.  Seeing your child suffer is unbearable.

I think a lot about people who don’t have anywhere warm to sleep tonight.  It’s impossible to get comfortable if you’re cold.  I can’t imagine not having a place to escape the cold at the end of the day.

I think a lot about the families who are separated, not just at the Holidays, but everyday due to wars, work, death and circumstances.  I look forward to Chad walking in the door every night.  I like the idea of having someone on my team at the end of the day.  I don’t know how I would survive without being able to look forward to him coming home every night.

Life is hard.  There is no doubt about that.  But it’s a lot harder for some than for most of us.

So, I’m very thankful today.  I’m so blessed and I hope you are too.  And I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
