I am thankful for many things.  Today I would like to specifically recognize a few:

I am thankful for all of these outstanding men (especially that handsome one second from the left sitting in the front).  I am thankful that I got to spend Thanksgiving last year with most of them and that though they aren’t home this year, that they could spend it together.

I am thankful for my family and the wonderful family that raised the man who became my husband 10 1/2 years ago.  I miss you all!

I am thankful that God has given me a strong and healthy body as well as the ability and desire to use it.

I am thankful for the life that I have, so many are less fortunate than I.

And today, as my family is far away and my husband is farther still, I am thankful for wonderful friends who have graciously included me in their holiday plans so that I wouldn’t be alone.

God is good.
