Words of Thanksgiving

Thankful. Thankful for the following words:

Hope
Love
Faith

Hope that keeps us trying. Hope that keeps us believing. Hope that bouys us up when we think we cannot succeed.

Love that is without boundaries. Love that makes life worthwhile. Love that we wear when the days are cold. Love that we give and love that comes back to us.

Faith that gives us hope and teaches us love. Faith that carries us when we cannot carry ourselves. Faith that allows us to believe in miracles.

Thanksgiving this year for many is a difficult time. Hunger, loneliness, desperation are companion of too many. There are those who are thankful that they are not one of the aforementioned, but when one suffers so too do we all.

We are in a world that mourns and grieves. A world that is hungry and poor. But again, there is faith. There is a Thanksgiving prayer to heal a world. There is a Thanksgiving word that we send out through our faith. It is love.

I am thankful for my family, a warm place to live, a coat to wear, peanut butter in the pantry and a warm bed to sleep upon. I am thankful for the freedom of speech, the privilege of voting and for the country in which I live. I am thankful for those I love and for the love they give to me.

For those of you following this blog, I am thankful. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving embracing the gift of your life. Gods many blessings on each and every one of you.
