Happy Thanksgiving. I was up earl this morning, mainly because I am old and can’t sleep in. I never thought I’d get to this point in my life, one where I couldn’t sleep past 6:30, ugh. So, in my repetitive routine, I read some of the Psalms, got up, made some coffee and did some writing and reading on the couch. Thinking now about the things that I am thankful for, and the things I will be celebrating today. They are simple really and in some ways they are the things I take for granted every day. Here is my Thankful list:

  • Family- My family is a gift to me, one that I know I take for granted often, but they have saved me in so many ways. Also, the family I grew up with. Although we live in three different countries, I love that we are family.
  • Faith- I am so thankful for my faith, my faith in Jesus as God. A faith that daily inspires me, gives me hope and the freedom to be who I am.
  • Friends- I have friends all over the world, and not jus accountancies, but people who really know me.
  • My personality- God gifted me with being adaptable, easy going, empathetic and with a quick wit, I love that.
  • Provision- Our family has worked with a non-profit (YWAM and Steps of Justice) for the past 24 years. We have never not had daily provision, and have seen miracle upon miracle of God taking care of our everyday needs and wants.
  • Airplanes- Thank you Wright Brothers for this. I love travel and Cambodia is a long walk from here.
  • My work- The school I am at, and the work that I do is life giving, inspiring and truly a gift from Jesus.

And the stuff I get to do and be apart of every day, I am so thankful for these simple things:

  • Books
  • Music
  • Laughter
  • Tears
  • Brooklyn 99
  • The cat, coffee p
  • Peanut butter
  • Heath and exercise
  • Candles
  • Wool Socks
  • Laughter

Take some time today to remember what gifts you have in your life, even the ones that are not the most pleasant, but help you grow and mature. We all have plenty to grumble about, but let’s take today to be thankful.
