Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful to be alive. It is so good to be able to get out and about in this lovely season, to takes walks with daughters and their little ones enjoying the trees. I am thankful for the Sugar Maples that are aflame with red and remind me of our old neighborhood. I am thankful for being close to my daughters and to their families and being able to spend time with them. I am thankful for new friends who meet with me to pray weekly as well as old friends whose lives were and are interwoven with mine. I am thankful for specialists who will come and assist my daughter and her hubby in the care for a child with Sensory Processing Disorder.
I am thankful for good wholesome movies, like Little House on the Prairie, that hubby and I watched with four of the grandkids last night. I am thankful for a healthy body and being able to go on walks while our weather is nice. I am thankful for the ability to sit down and quilt Christmas presents for each family and for the enjoyment I get in the making as well as in the giving. I am thankful for hubby's abilities with wood and his teaching grandsons to work with their hands. But above all else, I am thankful for Love that transcends this life, this world. I am thankful to Jesus, my Lord, for His great love poured out on me, saving me. I am thankful that His Grace is sufficient for me, His Strength is made perfect in my weakness. There is so much to be grateful for each and every day~we shouldn't just wait for November to give thanks. What are you thankful for today?
