Thankful

After reading around the blogosphere today, I have come across several ladies who are going through a variety of hardships. I know that bad things happen everyday and way too often to the people we know and love. In my reading today about the loss of loved ones, the end of a marriage and a cancer diagnosis, I have an overwhelming feeling of thankfulness for all that I have. My family is healthy, safe and secure. And I thank God for that. I say a prayer of gratitude to Jesus every day. Today it just seems that my heart has been especially touched by the circumstances of the women I read about and who I don't even know. I prayed for them today and I urge you to take a moment to acknowledge all that you have to be thankful for in your life. In our hectic, day to day lives, it's so easy to overlook things that are tremendously important. I want to be sure that I live and love for today with no regrets and thank God for every moment I have on Earth. I am Thankful.

I completely agree...I have been giving my kids hugs and kisses all day more than normal and driving them nuts in the process, but that's fine with me!

Wonderful post. Reading some of these stories really shows me how blessed I am. Also, if it wasn't for our blogs, we may not have had the opportunity to pray for these people specifically.
