Over at Rhondi’s blog, it is THANKFUL THURSDAY, so I'm going to join the fun.
I have so many reasons to be thankful, not only today, but every day. I'll hit the high points:
I have a husband who is wonderful. My mother told me the day I married him if she had been able to choose who I was to marry, she would have picked him. Her opinion, and mine, have not changed in two decades.
I am blessed with two fabulous children. The journey to parenthood was a long a difficult one. We were married over five years before our first son arrived. Three years later, our family was complete with our second son. Now that they're in the teen and tween years, I am still thankful, every day, for the privilege of being their mother.
We have everything in life we need--- a secure job, a safe home, a church we love, excellent schools, and (mostly) good health and wonderful family and friends.
I have the opportunity to pursue writing as a career. This has been a dream of mine for years, and now I am doing it full-time, or as full-time as anything can be with a husband, two kids, and various other responsibilities.
Thanks for letting me join your THANKFUL THURSDAY, RHONDI.
What are you thankful for today?
