So Thankful and Incredibly Blessed
For All of these and so much more…
So many wonderful things to be thankful for, every day!
My Heavenly Creator, from Whom all things come, including my free will;
my Sweetheart, the life we’ve made together, the love we share, and the good times we’ve had;
my caring and supportive friends;
Wise mentors who lend perspective to widen my views;
Good Samaritans and unnamed others whose words and deeds came when hope was low;
my health, home, and sustenance of daily life;
blessings and extra comforts so many others deserve but do not have;
a life with a sense of purpose, using my writing talent here
and in a leading funeral trade journal;
the love and encouragement I receive from so many people;
hope, forgiveness, compassion, and humility;
a little mouse to inspire me, lend a voice to my thoughts, and tell the world my story,
even if he isn’t exactly ‘real;’ 🙂
the service men and women who bravely defend my country;
peace officers, medics, and fire dept. people keeping safety and order around me;
Sheldon, my tortoise;
Shadow, my loyal angel-dog;
self-control and patience for Hunter, the devil-pup 😛
and a life of special memories, experiences, and meaningful lessons;
that I was born in America, the Land of The Free,
where these things are mine to enjoy without fear, torture, or retribution
and most of all—
a heart to fully cherish, love, and feel SO MUCH for ALL of the above.
Happy Thanksgiving to All. We have certainly been blessed to call you friends.
