I saw this idea on a few other blogs, and I thought it would be a great way to redirect my thinking (boo hoo I'm 30) ;o) and realize that I have so much to be thankful for. So, during the month of November, I will give thanks. I will link each post back to this one, just in case someone stumbles upon my blog and sees "Give thanks #13" (or whatever number it happens to be) and wonders where that came from! :o)
I am a couple days behind, so I'll add in an additional thankful item within two other posts in the month. Some will be deep, meaningful things like maybe a relationship. But I must warn you...some might seem silly! I mean...aren't most people thankful for a remote control?
Give thanks #1
I am thankful for close friendships. I believe people can go throughout life and never find a TRUE friend. One who loves you for the real you. I can be quirky, moody, ornery, and snippy sometimes, but deep down, I am a caring and compassionate person. The people who know me best know that I love the Lord and seek to further His kingdom, and with certain people in my life, I am a stronger person and can do just that.
I don't want to make a "list" of the people I am most thankful for because I'm sure they know who they are. Maybe I'll email them just to be sure! :o) But I thank God for the people in my life who make me a better Christian mom and wife. Those who life me up in prayer. Those who have seen me cry (or heard me cry over the phone)! Those who know things about my life that I'd rather keep private, and who honor that request to do so.
Thank you, Lord, for giving me some of the most wonderful friends. I cannot imagine my life without them. When I wonder why my life has lead me to this exact place, I can know for sure that it is because I was supposed to meet these people. And I am blessed.
