Thankful Thursday


I am thankful for another morning in which I can rise from my bed, and praise God for His many blessings that flow throughout my life. I am grateful for my lovebug, that loves me 100% percent of the time, unconditionally, just as I am. I am thankful for the good morning hugs I get from lovebug each morning, several hugs before he leaves for work, it starts my day off beautifully. I am thankful for my dad, who held my hand all through church last night, never in a million years did I ever think he would want anything to do with me, and now, we worship God together. I am thankful for standing next to my dad, and lovebug, as we sang amazing grace at church last night, then on the way home from church, my dad and I sang together in the car, praise God. I am thankful that I am feeling better, after last weeks round of sickness. I am thankful that my nephew called me the other night just to check on me, and tell me he loves me. I am thankful that my dads girlfriend, has really opened her heart up, and really reached out to me, we have become good friends. She truly loves the Lord, and my dad, double blessings. Praise God for all of these blessings, and so many more. I love You Lord.
