Sometimes it is hard to be thankful when life seems to be kicking you when you are down. But I am thankful. Thankful for family and friends who truly care about me. Thankful for crazy dogs who fight over who gets to sit in my lap.(They both fit) Thankful for cold days that allow me to build a fire. Thankful for a daughter-in-love who likes to go to breakfast with a sad old woman. Thankful for a psychologist who doesn't seem to think I am totally nuts. Thankful for a son who really cares if I am happy. Thankful for a God who loves me despite knowing everything about me. Thankful to have someone to bake cakes for.
The list goes on. I may not seem thankful sometimes. But I truly am. Life is so hard right now that sometimes I forget. I am thankful to Sarah who posted this on Facebook. It was a glorious reminder.
"When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed, when you are discouraged thinking all is lost, count your blessings - name them one by one - count your many blessings, see what God has done."
