THANKFUL MONTH

November is the 'Thankful Month", so I have been reflecting on the things I am thankful for.  I took the "Month Challenge" on facebook to post something I am thankful for each day.
  1. It was a year ago that our daughter and her husband were told that since "none of the fertility tricks" that the specialist had tried worked, that they had a very low chance of ever conceiving.  Today, I am thankful for our unborn grandson, who the specialists say is healthy and rather large.  His due date is Dec. 5th, but they are going to take him sometimes in November......so that makes this even more of a thankful month.  Mom's pre-pregnancy size was extra small and little Cameron has broad shoulders so they are planning a c-section.  After the ultrasound next week we will find out if he gets to stay in the shelter of mom's belly until the week of the 26th or if he will make an early appearance.
  2. I am thankful for Salvation and the love of Christ.
  3. I am thankful for a Christian Home.
  4. I am thankful for my husband, a Godly man; he has been my best friend for over 40 years, the father of my children and my pastor for the past 16 years.
  5. I am thankful for our Christian daughter and her husband who is a spiritual leader of their home.
  6. I am thankful for our Christian son and his Christian wife who are newlyweds.
  7. I am thankful for health.
  8. I am thankful for a church that loves God and loves each other.
  9. I am thankful for a job where I can minister to others and be myself.
  10. I am thankful for great friends.
  11. I am thankful for the opportunity to vent and bore all of my Blog Friends.
I could go on and on with the things I am thankful for...........we all have things to be thankful for.  What are you thankful for?  I would love to hear from you.

WARNING:  When you hear from me next, I will be a brand new "Mimi" for the very first time.  (Our daughter has named us "Mimi" and "Grandaddy" but little Cameron may change all of that.  Smile.)  We were married 6 1/2 year before we had our daughter.........she has been married 5 1/2 year.............so I have waited a very long time for this.  I am warning you....I will be the most annoying new "Mimi" around.  I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!

I'm thankful for my husband's hugs, my grown sons' phone calls, the staff that takes care of my mother-in-law, the health of my mother, the gathering of family, the great kids next-door, my sometimes challenging job, the beauty of nature, and most of all the love of my Savior, Jesus Christ.
