Thankful Thursday

As I sit down to write this post I can't help but be filled with thankfulness.

Oh sure I could whine and complain, I mean let's get real who doesn't have problems in their life?
I could tell you that money is an issue, but honestly that is the case for many.
I could tell you that it's so hard to have hubby away working, but honestly I am thrilled that he is working, millions aren't.
I could tell you all the bad things, but than really it wouldn't be called Thankful Thursday. Maybe something like Depressing Thursday, or Life is so Rough Thursday. I much prefer Thankful Thursday.

So here are just a few of the things that I am so thankful for:

My hubby
      -He works so hard just so we can have a roof over our heads, food in our tummy and great reliable vehicles to drive.
      -He listens to me. Even when I think he doesn't hear me, sometimes months later he will recall a conversation that we had.
      -He respects me.
      -He loves me. He tells me so over and over again.
My children
     -Two of them have grown up into such fine young men. I am so proud to be their Mom.
     -My daughter is growing up before my eyes and I am loving the relationship that we are building.
     -My future children...knowing that one day we will be building onto our family.

My country.
    I am thrilled to pieces to live in a country where I am free. Free to be a woman, free to worship the Lord, free to walk down the street and not worry.

I decided to stop here. I could keep going and going.
The good Lord has blessed me so much. He picks me up and dusts me off millions of times. Times when I refuse to be picked up, He drags me along until I realize just how much I need Him.
I am blessed!!

I am linking up with Lisa today. Come rejoice with me and many others.
