Thanksgiving thoughts...


I just wanted to share a few Thanksgiving thoughts before tomorrow. First, I want to praise the one and only Lord who has looked after us in this time of unemployment..for the hope and strength He has given us to face each day as a challenge and not a burden. I am so thankful that my dh will start his new job on Monday, what a blessing that is for us.
This year has brought many changes some for the good and some that are heartbreaking but in this time of Thanksgiving I want to say that I am thankful for my dear children who have shown great strength of character and my parents who were quick to say they were here for us in our hour of uncertainty.
I am so truly blessed...I truly am. My dh is so steady and strong and so willing to do what it takes to support us and after 27 years he is still the one I look for at the end of the day...I am thankful.
So if you are still with me...I want to say that I wish you a day filled with safe travel and blessings that are abundant. Let's thank the Lord for his abundance at our tables and in our lives. That is my prayer for each of you.

Oh Darling I know how hard it can be, when we were out of work that year. I know that for your man starting over is a big hit. When My guy had to begin at the low end of the totem pole well it hit him hard but really matured him too.
We went down 2/3 in income but we are thriving still and more appreciative of all that we do have. Especially health.
Happy thanksgiving.
