Gratitude

On Sunday someone admonished us that if we want to show God that we are thankful we should give of ourselves.  I'd like to add...we should express our gratitude. 

I am grateful for kids who are helpful, forgiving, patient (even when I'm not), outgoing, optimistic, giving, and loving.  My husband beats all with his compassionate and understanding nature.  I love my brothers and sister AND Mom and Dad for helping my life have depth and purpose.  My adopted family (meaning all in-laws) make me grateful for the spice of life--without variety, life couldn't be as exciting. I feel very undeserving of such wonderful people in my life, yet I am so grateful to/for them.  

I'm thankful to live in a country where I can practice my religion, not fear for my or my children's safety (most of the time), and strive to reach our dreams.  Thanks to those who help preserve these privileges.  

I am grateful to know who I am, and where I am going if I live up to my side of the bargain.
