My Thanksgiving ABCs

It took me a long time to get mine up. But here they are, unedited, just as they came to me.

Attitude. It’s the thing that can make or break your day!
Beauty. Like Libby says, “finding it in the ordinary and the extraordinary”
Cory. Of course. I married the best guy on Earth.
Doughnuts. Shouldn’t probably admit that.
Ellen. Now that woman has good energy.
Forgiveness. Boy, I’m thankful I get a chance to redeem myself.
Gas prices. $1.59 at Holiday today! Can it sustain?
Holidays. I love the chaos.
Imperfection. Admitting you’re weak makes you stronger.
Jobs. Grateful for both Cory and I having work!
Kids. Cole, Matty and Jack…I love being a mom to boys.
Love. I know it seems overused, but it is the most important thing.
Mom. Both my mom and my mother-in-law are invaluable to me.
Newborns. For those who are waiting for one, my prayers are with you.
Others. Do to them as you’d have them do to you!
People. I am fascinated by people and am touched by so many.
Questions. What a better way to learn?
Rest. I’m thankful for quiet time and good nights’ sleeps.
Sunshine. Good ol’ Vitamin D.
Travel. I have so many places I want to visit!
Umbrellas. If you want to see a rainbow, you gotta stand a little rain!
Vacation. Praying we have one soon.
Water. It’s a luxury for some; important to not take it for granted.
eXcitement. I have much in my life.
Yesterday. May I take away many lessons.
Zealous. Be it in all things important!

L-Leanne We're thankful for you too of course!

I notice how I lazily sign PEG all the time. Maybe I should be Peg now since I'm over 30.

zealous! I knew there were some good z words. :)

great list!

hey - I'm reading a book you might like, two actually - The Secret Message of Jesus and Everything Must Change. I am excited to see someone articulating my thoughts, only much better than I could ever do. :)

Libby - I'll look it up, thanks for the advice. Did you read The Shack?

Peg - you can't just be Peg then I'd have to call you Pen and that would be wierd.

Thanks, Andy! You too!

I haven't! I'll order it from the library; it looks good. It sounds like it might be kind of similar to "Dinner with a Perfect Stranger", which I just read and enjoyed - a guy gets an invitation to dinner with Jesus.
