Thanksgiving brings up a time of thankfulness. I heard what if God only allowed you to have the things you thanked him for the night before. I heard this several months ago and really took it to heart. So every night in my prayers I thank God for all the many amazing blessings he has given me.

~I am thankful for God's mercies, forgiveness, love, patience, understanding that he so freely gives
~I am thankful for my children
~I am thankful God thought enough of me to be their mom and to try to guide, love and support them daily
~I am thankful for my parents who have been so loving, caring, giving and supportive
~I am thankful for my sister and her family whom I adore and love
~I am thankful for grandmothers and my great grandmother who have taught me how to laugh, especially my great grandmother
~I am thankful for my family
~I am thankful for my friends, my true friends love me as much as I love them and don't judge me
~I am thankful that I am able to work and that I have two jobs to help take care of my kids
~I am thankful that my children are healthy
~I am thankful I am healthy
~I am thankful that I have a roof over my head
~I am thankful that I have a car that can take my children where they need to go
~I am thankful to be able to provide food for my family
~I am thankful for the troops who fight daily for our freedoms and make sacrifices so we can live in the land of the free
~I am thankful for the family of troops who make just as many sacrifices as their loved ones who are fighting for our country
~I am thankful that I can attend church without fear of persecution
~I am thankful there are people who love my children as much as I do
~I am thankful that I can laugh, and talk, and see and hear

These are a few of the things I thank God for every night in my prayers to him. From my family to you and yours, Happy Thanksgiving and many many blessings!!
