Grateful Heart

I thank God...

for them,


because they fill my heart with JOY
every time they laugh,

and when they are strong and healthy,
I am even stronger.

for him...
because he taught me that love is unconditional.
He made me what I am now,
and that I must appreciate the smallest details of my life
because there are even many who lack.

for this...
because I understand now that life is Good.
Even when storms come,
there is always the SUN that will shine
after the dark days.

and for this...

that I may already call our own,
a home that will keep us sheltered in,
a home that will keep us together
living happily and worry-free.


...and for EVERYTHING that is good in our lives.
Even if there be bad, thank you.
Because the bad ones always let out the good in us.

Thank you.

In many ways, we need to be thankful.
What are you thankful for?

I had to come over and visit you after you visited my place. Your two children are so beautiful. I too am most thankful for my children. I live with my daughter and her husband. It was so wonderful for them to take me in so I wouldn't be alone. Your husband is a wonderful photographer. I can't believe how beautiful his photos are. We both have a lot to be thankful for.
