I’m showing up a little late to the party, but I wanted to put something on here about the blessings in my life that I am Thankful for.
First and foremost, I am Thankful that God is in my life. He has given me so many blessings and gifts that I couldn’t even begin to count them. I try to see them every day; however I know I miss many more that he has given me.
I am Thankful for a loving family, my husband, my beautiful, smart, and caring children, and all of our extended family. That I always feel loved and appreciated, and a part of something much bigger.
I am Thankful for all of my family that live far away, that we all know that we love each other even though we don’t talk every day.
I am Thankful for special friends who support me in my faith. They are always there for me when I have questions or am in need of support. They always show me what good faithful people of God are like and have been wonderful examples of devout Catholic Christians to me.
I am Thankful for my Church family. It gives me great joy to serve on the altar at our Parish and to greet the parishioners as they leave Mass. It truly fills me with love every time I get to do it.
I am Thankful for the deacons and priests in our diocese, along with our Bishop. We have been blessed with some wonderful men who have truly dedicated their lives to God and strive every day to be faithful shepherds to His people. I wouldn’t be where I am today without a few of them.
I am Thankful for my co-workers (some of whom have become great friends) for all they do every day. I am proud to be their leader and I couldn’t do it without them. I want them to know every day how much I appreciate what they do and cherish whatever extent of a connection I have with each of them.
I am Thankful for blogging. I never could have imagined how much of impact it would have on me. It’s been amazing to ‘meet’ lots of new friends through blogging and feel like I have a whole set of prayer warriors at my beckon call. It has been incredibly beneficial for me to put my thoughts down in written word. That is something I have never done before and am so glad I started. I am Thankful for all of you who spend a little bit of time reading what I have to say.
Linking up with Cari and the others at Clan Donaldson for today's Theme Thursday!
