A Month of Thankfulness - Day Four


Today I am thankful for always having enough to feed my family.  It may not always be the things we love to eat, but it is always enough to keep us from going hungry.  The blessing of raising much of our own food means that even if there may not be much money, there is always a meal.

A Month of Thankfulness - Day 3

Today I am thankful for my "simple" life.  I live in the country, we raise our own food and the kids know the value of a little hard work.  It's gratifying to look out the back window and see the rabbits and ducks.  I love the sound of the rooster crowing.  Merlin, our Great Pyrenees, barks all night letting predators know he's protecting our stock and I'm able to sleep soundly.

It's a pretty good life.

A Month of Thankfulness - Day Two

Since I made my day one post on November 2nd, you get two posts today.

Today I am also thankful for my children.  Even when they drive me nuts, I can still look at them and be amazed.  They remind me to stop and really enjoy the small things in life.  When I was young I never gave much thought to having kids.  It wasn't that I didn't want them (as some people seem to believe), it was just that it didn't matter to me if I ever had them or not.

Now that I do have them, I have been blessed to experience a whole new view of life by watching them grow and being privileged to guide them as they grow.
