This is from Patty over at:

Giving Thanks...................

If you do this, leave for your link over at HER journal!

What are you THANKFUL for?? Is it for your health, is it for your wealth? , is it for your kids?, etc....

Just sit down and think..really think...... What do you hold most to your heart that you are thankful for?? If you are like me I cannot pinpoint just one thing . I cannot say " oh it is for Ryan { my son}" cause what about my mother, father, etc...

Then what about you health, friends, etc................



Ok I have so many things I'm thankful for so here's my list!


1. Jesus, with out him I am nothing and my life would be nothing.

2. My husband, who's home safe from Iraq!

3. My daughter Jordyn. I never knew a mother's love and then I had her and never wanted it to stop. Even though she died from cancer, I thank GOD every day that we had her, even if it was only for 2 yrs. She will stay with us for the rest of our lives.

4. My sons. My oldest showed me that I really could love a child again after our daughter died and our younger son has showed us that we could go into a hospital with our child and walk out standing (he was in NICU for 8 days because of fluid on his lungs).

5. Living in Germany. We're experiencing so many wonderful things here. Our marriage and over all family has grown closer because we depend on each other so much.

6. Fall, I love the new found cooler temps that it brings and the beautiful leaves.

7. My friends. A few certain ones have been my rock and I hope they know just how much I love them.


I know I could go on and on, but I don't want to make this a mile long!

I do this every thanksgiving... write an essay on what I'm thankful for and share it with friends and family. Counting your blessings not only makes YOU feel better but people like to be counted among those blessings!

thanks for sharing!

Great list.  I have already been in the Thanksgiving mode.  I am ready for the turkey I think!
PS is it hard to get turkey in Germany?  I hope not.  Maybe it's the cranberry sauce that gets tricky to find.
