Tomorrow is the day we all give thanks. . I have seen people on fb do a 30 days of Thanksgiving each year on this month, but I'm sure we all give thanks throughout the year. I know I do.
I'm thankful for being born into the family I have. Couldn't have asked for better. Some would say it could have been wealthier, but I doubt it. Wealth isn't just money, it's love and caring. My grandparents were just that and instilled it into their children. Though my paternal grandmother passed when my father was just a baby I'm sure she was wonderful. I remember my grandfather as a quiet man and the man who (my parents said) gave me my first dog when I was not quite a year old. I was told he said no child should grow up without a dog. That dog was my companion and protector until he passed.
My maternal grandparents were with me until my 11th birthday and were very special to me. I stayed with them when Sherry had her surgery and they were always a place of love and care. They're 6 children all have carried on that legacy.
I'm thankful for the wonderful man God seen fit to give me. Though he had a hard life, he never let it get the best of him and became a man of integrity, responsibilty, and an A-one father and husband. My children could not have asked for a better dad.
I am thankful my children all became grown-up to be proud of. That they met the perfect person for them and have raised some of the most delightfully wonderful, talented, smart and decent children and great-grandchildren. All who are so just awesome and have great parents who will help them grow to be great adults.
I am thankful for my sisters, brother and their spouses, and their kids.
I am especially thankful for the closeness we all have as family is one of the most important things our family cherishes. We see and hear for families who, for some reason or another, just can't seem to learn to get along. What they lose is a tragedy.
I thankful for all the wonderful friends I have found online and consider you all a part of my family.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
