As I think about this holiday and what it stands for. Traditionally celebrated as a time of thanksgiving to God for His blessings to us. And I thank Him for the most important blessing and that is the blood His Son shed that I might be saved from my sins! That truly is the greatest blessing and should be always be at the top of my thanksgiving list, and it ought to be daily!
I'm thankful of the wife that God has provided me with! What a wonderful thing it is to know that I have someone to fight my battles with! Someone that loves me for me! She knows me better than anyone, she sees me at my best and at my worst! And still there with me after 17 years! Wow what a woman!!
I'm thankful for 2 loving parents, Mom and a Dad, not 2 mom's or 2 dad's! Who saw fit to discipline me and teach me wrong from right! Who taught me that life is not fair. And you get out of life what you put into it! What great parents!
I'm also thankful for my blogging friends! You guys are awesome! Always helping when I ask for it, reading my drivel, and writing great stuff that makes me laugh and makes me mad! I couldn't be associated with a better group of bloggers!!
Last but not least by any stetch! I am thankful for our Armed Forces! What a great bunch of MEN and WOMEN! I capitalized that for a reason! I hate it when people say, "we're sending our kids out to fight this war" These people aren't kids, or children like I heard them called today on the radio! These are fighting Men and Women who are the best at what they do! The best military in the world! I get to go back and forth to my grocery store, work, gym, Mom's house, families homes without even thinking that it might not be safe! Think about that for a minute! We don't even blink when we go somewhere in this great Country of ours! We just get in the car, plane, train, boat and go. Awesome! All because they keep us safe and do those things that others would not to keep us that way! Thanks to all of them!!
Have a great Thanksgiving and we will see ya on the flip side of the weekend!!
