I have been thinking, lately, that I need to be more thankful. Maybe this is because my five-year-old is so UNthankful! Kelsey has been giving me fits, constantly whining and fussing and getting angry. Scott and I are nearly at our wits' end trying to figure out the best way to deal with her. I think its time to dig out our Dr. Dobson books and re-educate ourselves on parenting.
Anyway. Her whining has started me thinking on what I am thankful for.
So, here's the list:
I am thankful that I know Jesus. There is nothing better than Him.
I am thankful that I have a loving husband. Many women don't.
I am thankful that I live in a free country, where I can raise my children up to be Christians. (although, Kelsey hasn't acted particularly Christian-like lately)
I am thankful that my husband has a good job, and can support us.
I am thankful for my home.
I am thankful for my 7-year-old vehicle, because it runs and has heat.
I am thankful for my church and my pastor(s).
I am thankful for good Christian parents.
I am thankful for loving in-laws.
I am thankful that all of my family is in good health.
I am thankful that I am cancer-free.
I am thankful that my life is peaceful.
I am thankful ... for everything.
