Sunday Scribblings #138 - Grateful

Sunday Scribblings #138 - Grateful
I had to look back to make sure that we hadn't had this one before! The prompt for this week is: grateful.


Grateful

I am so grateful for my loving hubby, who sticks with me through thick and thin.

I am grateful for my 3 beautiful daughters, who have each turned into lovely women with goodness, kindness and humility in their hearts.

I am grateful for the home my family has built and for the wisdom to know that home is not necessarily a house or apartment. Home is where the heart is.

I am grateful for the hearing and eyesight the Lord graced me with. Without these, I would not have been able to enjoy the Christmas play rehearsal of my youngest daughter tonight. Out of the mouths of babes, clarity has entered my life.

I am grateful both my wonderful parents are still alive and fairly healthy. Also my mother-in-law, who celebrated her 84th birthday this summer. I realize many people my age have already lost their parents, so still having my parents in my life is a joy every day.

I am grateful for my health and for the health of my family. Although my hubby and I have both had some health scares over the past few years, we are back on the right track to healthy eating and living. Like my Granny Devine used to say,"If you have your health, you have everything." Here's to many more years of health and happiness!

I am grateful for my hubby, my oldest 2 daughters and I still have jobs. My hubby works in the media, so I guess there will always be news. I'm a Church secretary, so I guess people will always need their religion. But my girls both work at the same Brake Parts factory and I'm worried about the slow down and failure of the automotive industry. I pray we will all be able to hold onto our jobs to provide a decent living.
