Jesus. My family. My friends. My church. My job. My husband's job. A sense of purpose. My home. Even my dog. PG Tips. Dr. Pepper. KSBJ. Brooke Fraser. People who pray for my family. Health insurance. Freedom. Memory. The Holy Spirit living in me. Hope. Justice. The patience of God...and my husband. These are some things I'm thankful for.
This has not been an easy year. If Annabeth hadn't been born this year, I'd just as soon forget about 2009. But God has been so kind to us. I could spend every second of tomorrow thanking God for different things and never run out of things to say.
Tomorrow morning I'm going to bake a pumpkin crunch cake and head over to my mom's to help get lunch ready. At one o'clock we will sit elbow to elbow with our beloveds and the feast will begin. I'm really looking forward to some cornbread dressing, green bean casserole, and broccoli rice casserole. Did you hear my stomach? It just growled - no joke.
The highlight of my day will be getting to see my aunt and two cousins whom I haven't seen in almost two years. I'm so excited.
God is good. I love Him a lot.
