On the eve of a holiday that celebrates gratitude, I must say that even though I have something very sad going on in my personal life, that I am truly grateful. I am grateful that I have a really good job in a place where I work with people that I truly admire and respect. I am grateful that I have wonderful children and a terrific son in law, who are just really nice and kind people. I have a nice place to live, and my sweet little dog. I have hobbies that I enjoy, books to read, enough food to eat, good health, and I have warmth against the cold. I have a beautiful church home.
At the same time, I think tonight and say prayers for those who are cold and hungry. I will pray for those who need a job, a place to live, and the most basic of needs met. My troubles are small compared to those who are just trying to survive.
I wish you all much abundance and all good things. May you be blessed many times over.
