In Everything Give Thanks

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.

Just wait until those gorgeous children become teenagers!!! I prayed more then than when they were younger. It's all going to be okay though. Just keep loving them and letting them know that you love them no matter what. God bless you. Connie W.
