I'm thankful for parents who demonstrated consistency of character by doing what was right rather than what was convenient.
I am thankful for loving people who have cheered me when I did well and who forgave and supported me when I did not.
And i agree with both post above..I'm thankful for my family and friends....P.S. And having a JOB!!
I AM THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING
I am thankful for the family that remains close to me. I am thankful for a Mother who loved and cared for me; who I miss everday now. Being thankful shows humility,respect, and love.
My Life have been rocky over the years. But God saw me through the good and the bad. I'm thankful to be a breast cancer survivor and also I battled with kidney disease, but I received a kidney in 2005 from my sister. So I'm thankful for God giving me another chance to fight all of my battles and for having the best family in the world that helped supported me. God is on time all of the time.
On a lighter note... I'm thankful that I will be able to tell my grandkids that I actually ate Twinkies,Hohos and DingDongs before the greedy unions played poker with Hostess...and everybody lost.
Naturally, we all are thankful for good health, family and friends. We used to be able to add "freedom" to that list; but alas, more and more Americans are willing to trade away freedom for goodies from the taxpayers.
I guess at the moment, I am most thankful that we have enough freedom loving people in Congress to slow down the runaway liberal train.
I am thankful for my family and friends, both past and present, who have made my life's journey of 63 years and counting such a pleasant trip!!!
I am thankful for the many Blessings in my life, but most of all, I am thankful for every man and woman who has ever served in the U. S. military so that I am able to enjoy those Blessings.
Everyday I am thankful for the fact I live in the greatest, most blessed country in the world. Thankful for the people who have fought, and in some cases gave their lives just so I can be free to say and do just about anything I want. I'm grateful that I had a Daddy that taught me how to manage a dollar, how to change the oil in my car, change a flat tire, and most thankful that he fought for me and my siblings in a divorce(I don't even like to think what would have became of us if our mother had gotten us). He was a hard and strict man, but, he did make two good women and a good man out of us. I'm thankful my step-children and my son listened to me when I would "rant and rave" about one thing or another they should or should not do. None have been in jail, they all work, and three of them have admitted , "Mama you were right". Of couse I was, a parent only wants the best for their children. The most important woman in my life was my ex-mother-in-law. Even though her son and I were divorced, we remained friends until she passed away. In fact, I was with her the last three days she was alive and I got to tell her of any and all women in this world, I loved her most(tears are coming to my eyes as I write this). But, the most important thing in my life I am thankful for is knowing that no matter what, The GOD of this world loves me!
NOT becoming the person that I was repeatedly told I was, or would become. A South Side Ridge Runner.
For those that don't know the old southern use of the term it means a lot of interesting things.
I posted my Thankful For in the wrong place.
