Things I’m Thankful For on Thanksgiving 2010

As today is Thanksgiving, I would be remiss if I didn’t take a minute to meditate on the multitude of blessings in my life. So here is a list of the main things in my heart this evening. But as we all know, each of us truly has more to be grateful for than can be expressed in a list such as this. For as soon as we begin to recognize what we have, the gratitude in itself blesses us even more abundantly.

(This list is not in any real order, but simply the the thoughts of my heart as they flow upward into my brain and down through my fingertips as they are typing :] )

I’m grateful for:

Hands to type with
