I am thankful for healthy children. Not all parents spend thanksgiving gathered around a table. Some gather around a hospital bed and others a grave.
I am thankful for my husband and father of my children. Not all husbands and fathers are with their wives and children, either by choice or because of duty.
I am thankful that I grew up in poverty, as an adult money is never a hindrance to achievement. The difference between need and want are well defined, even to children who have never known need.
I am thankful to live in a country that allows me to gather and worship my God of choice. The whole world should know this freedom, but they don’t.
I am thankful for waking up today, alive and healthy that I may enjoy the life that I’ve been blessed with.
