Giving Thanks

There is always much to want, wish and hope for. But there is always much to give thanks for as well. I have four healthy children. I have a husband who loves me beyond belief and who, after 16 years, am still very much in love with. We have our own home. We have jobs that we love (which I am just about done with that student loan!). We have loads of friends by our side. We still have our Mom's. Our Dad's are both in heaven, probably enjoying a drink together. Our Grandparent's are gone as well, but they all lived loved and full lives.

We have love and happiness. We know the gift of travel. Of learning of other cultures and seeing the beauty of old buildings. We have the desire to travel more. Our love of learning hasn't ended.

I could list things all day. There is so much to be thankful for, but I am most thankful this year, in particular, for forgiveness.
