I Am Thankful…

This Thanksgiving week, as I think about what I am thankful for, a few things come quickly to mind…

  • my family,
  • good friends,
  • a wonderful church family,
  • my home,
  • and life in a country where I am free to pursue my dreams and to homeschool my children,
  • spending Thanksgiving weekend with my parents, three sisters and their families.

There are other things for which I am thankful that are perhaps not quite so typical…

  • I’m thankful for the financial hardship I’ve had over the past few years. I’m learning to fully trust in God and have the privilege of seeing His provision.
  • The years of separation from my husband have been difficult, but I’m thankful for the stronger bond that I have with my daughter since it’s just the two of us now.
  • I’m thankful that I am learning to love even when it is not reciprocated.
