Today is moving day for my son and his wife. My sons are busy right now moving things from one home to the other. I’m still thankful that they found a place to rent. It’s old and tiny and nothing’s level, but it’s a home and it’s available and clean and there’s a yard. I know people living in a lot worse and people who can find nothing at all, so this little home is a good gift from God.
I’m thankful that we are getting mail again after a couple week of no mail delivery due to a mail strike/lockout. I’m expecting a few good things in the mail, so the renewed mail delivery is a good gift, too.
I’m thankful that the garden is growing. I’m thankful for the long daylight hours that make the plants grow fast. I’m thankful for the recent rain, because it’s good for growing things, too. I’m thankful for summer, a short season here, but a beautiful one.
I’m thankful for God’s care for me and my family.
Throughout this year I’m planning to post a few thoughts of thanksgiving each Thursday along with Kim at the Upward Call and others.
