I have the ability and resources necessary to cook our meals and wash our clothes.
During the day, I often touch base with those I hold dear, my parents who provided the foundation of love and instruction that I have built my life upon. My brother and sisters who are not only my siblings but my closest friends and confidants.
I am often caught off guard and filled with happiness as I recognize the little moments of wonder and beauty that remind me that life is more than chores and expectations.
In the evening, as my husband returns from work, the focus shifts to family together time. Talking, relaxing and relating our day.
At the close of the day, I snuggle my son into bed and I am humbled by the infinite gifts the Lord has provided, in spite of my sins and shortcomings.
I am thankful that I have the ability to Praise Him openly, for his provisions and grace.
And it occurs to me that even though time has altered the appearance of our world dramatically since the first Thanksgiving, the things that we are most thankful for have not changed.
