Thankful Thursday Thirteen

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

 Life is not perfect; it never will be. But I realize that I have so much for which to be grateful.

 1. I'm thankful to live in the United States.
2. I'm thankful for entertainment: Movies, theater, music, television.
3. I'm thankful my mother is still alive to celebrate thanksgiving with me. She has been through three successful cancer surgeries, a knee replacement, a nasty broken wrist, and a hard fall on the concrete that damaged her teeth and mouth. All this within the last seven years. Thank you, God, for giving me such a strong woman with a fighting spirit.
4. I am thankful for church and the freedom to choose where (or if) I worship.
5. I'm thankful for the memories I have of my dad. I miss him so much.
6. I'm thankful for a week off from school.  Maybe I can go see the new Peanuts movie!

7. I'm thankful for my children. They are turning out to be such awesome young adults!
8. I'm thankful for the Internet. Yes, it takes my time, but that is my choice, so...
9. I am thankful I can CHOOSE (lots of things, how to spend my time, what career I want, where to live, and so on.)
10. I'm thankful for friends who enjoy spending time together, socializing, having fun.
11. I am thankful for my cat.  All my fur-baby has to do is purr, and my spirits are instantly lifted.
12. I'm thankful I have a good job, a car, and a home.
13. Most of all, I am thankful that God loves me. I'm grateful to have a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. That is the biggest blessing of all.
