Thanksgiving Reflections

Dear Diary,
There are so many things I'm thankful for with the most important being family.  I have a big one!  Growing up in a family of 7, there was little time in my world for peace and quiet.  Although I crave it sometimes... I really wouldn't have it any other way.  With 4 kids, our home is always loud and lively.  When we all get together for the holidays, it's even bigger and better.  My Mom does a great job hosting.  There's anywhere from 30 to 40 people at our gatherings.  I'm very thankful to have so many loved ones in my life... family and friends and I love that our kids have a boat load of fun loving cousins.  When I say I'm thankful... I'm thankful to God for making it all possible.  God puts joy in my heart!  Making a habit of thanking God through prayer helps me realize just how many blessings I have in my life.  This Thanksgiving and all year long I will continue to be grateful for family, friends, health, safety, freedom, food, shelter, laughter and my loving and forgiving God!
