Thankful Thursday Thirteen

A short list of what makes me thankful.
  1. There is a God who loves me so much he sent His son to save me.
  2. I have a husband who loves me - sometimes in spite of me.
  3. I have children who love and respect me and who have, as adults, become my friends and who have given me wonderful in-laws.
  4. I have a close family that is supportive and who are always there for each other.
  5. I have an amazing group of friends who are just like family. We really do "do life" together.
  6. I have two amazing, healthy, beautiful grandbabies and one more on the way.
  7. I have a dog that makes me laugh.
  8. I live in a country that allows me "the pursuit of happiness".
  9. I have a job, a vehicle, and a home.
  10. I have the ability to see, hear, smell, talk, walk and feel.
  11. I have the ability to think and access to places for and instruments of learning.
  12. I have a Bible in my own language that I can read whenever I so desire. (Actually I have several translations.)
  13. I have a computer that allows me access to the world, to new friends and ideas, and reminds me that no matter how big the world seems, we all live under the same sky! (If you doubt that, check out just a few of the many Sky Watch Friday links here.)

I recently visited a TT that listed things the writer was grateful for and among them was one shallow, materialistic thing...her cell phone. I think we should all be allowed one shallow, materialistic thing for which to be thankful and it might be a close race between my iPhone and my MacBook Pro.
