I know a lot of people on Facebook are sharing something they are thankful for every day through the month of November. I am not participating in that although I am grateful for many things. This is my thankful short list. I have a thankful heart.
1. I am thankful for all of the experiences that life has brought my way. I wouldn’t be the person I am without them all. It’s not an easy thing to learn to embrace the bad but when you do, it can be totally amazing.
2. I am thankful for my parents. I love these two people with a love I can’t define. They mean more to me each day. I can’t imagine life without them.
3. I am thankful for becoming a mother, the good, the bad…all of it!
4. I am thankful to my husband who has graciously supported me for 33 years, enabling me to stay at home with our kids while homeschooling them; and to pursue the many entrepreneurial itches I had the urge to scratch, for without him I would not have been able to do so. Being able to stay home with my kids when they were growing up is the greatest gift this side of heaven.
I am grateful for so much more but I just wanted to focus on those few things that claim the biggest parts of my heart.
What are you thankful for?
