I Thank God today that I have food to eat, a roof over my head and people to love.
I Thank God I live in America...where even, should everything fall apart, we have the freedom to pick ourselves up and start over.
I am thankful for summer.
For the sunshine and the days I have spent fishing.
For the memories I have of swimming in the lake, and then drip drying in the back of a pickup on our way to Scott's party store for an ice cream cone.
I am thankful for autumn.
For the smell of burning leaves.
For having been able to see the leaves change color in vermont.
For seeing the aspens go yellow in the rockies.
I am thankful for winter...
for the memories of building snow forts when I was little.
for the snow that decorated the alps in southern Germany at Christmas while the town below sparkled with lights and some guy played silent night on a french horn, and the sound echoed off the mountain peaks.
I am thankful for the snow that packs tight enough to make ice balls that leave welts ;o)
I am thankful for spring...for flowers and rain...especially warm rain.
The kind of rain, that when you were little you used to love to run around in till you were soaked.
I am thankful for my children.
For who they are.
And, for how they, in many ways,
allow me to relive my childhood by watching them enjoy things.
By watching them be normal.
Even spoiled sometimes.
It feels good to be able to spoil your kids.
I am thankful that we can.
I am grateful for my husband.
Who is a good man.
A good hearted man.
A man I can look up to and admire.
For working hard for his family.
For putting himself last and us first.
I am thankful for each day I get.
I am thankful for the support I get from you guys and from the blogs I read.
I am thankful for my good friends.
And for todays moment of zen...
I am ever so grateful to God for creating these two people, and for giving someone the inspiration for stringed instruments...and for allowing this moment to happen.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
Talk to you all on Friday.
