Thanksgiving Day 2010

Another year has passed and once again the holidays are upon us.  We are about to feast and celebrate Thanksgiving dinner with some of our family.  We all have so much to be thankful and looking back at the months gone by I can say that God has been so good to me and has answered my prayers many times.  

 As we give thanks for the many blessings we've enjoyed I sit here and my heart goes out to those whose lives have been turned upside down because of the economy and are having to struggle to make ends meet.  We have all had to make adjustments learning  different ways to make ends meet and smile because we are truly blessed in so many ways.  

I am married to my best friend who also happens to be the best husband in the world.  He is so very good to me and always there willing to do anything if its going to make me happy.  I love my family and even if I don't see them I know that they are in the hands of God, and that is all I can say or do about that subject.  Since I live with my daughter Tiffany & son-in-law Dino I also see my grandchildren every day and that makes me happy.  Having my dad living here and not an hour away gives me peace of mind that I know he's doing good even if he is sad sometimes because mom is gone and he's alone now.  

I have many wonderful friends that I've known for many years and who I know will be there for me in times when I need prayer or just an ear to let me vent.  

This past year had many ups and downs, a lot of sadness and health problems.  We have over come all of it because God is so good and knows exactly what we need and when we need it.  My poor son-in-law has had a terrible year with back & neck surgery and going through red tape with disability insurance etc.  We have cried together through our sadness of losing our loved ones. Helping each other with all the dilemas  of our everyday life I have learned patience and accepted that life is only hard if we dwell in our problems.   It wasn't  easy at times but we know that The Family that prays together stays together.   

Thank you Lord for your goodness and for filling my cup with love.
