Giving Thanks

In preparation for Thanksgiving, I give thanks…
for crunchy, sweet-smelling November leaves;
for happy do-it-again giggles;
for wiggly dogs who are always happy to see me;
for Anna’s spontaneous pink tea parties;
for shouts of “boat” every time Will sees one;
for a cozy home and good food to fill our bellies and jobs to pay for it all;
for hugs and kisses and snuggles;
for Jon, my love, who helps me dream and makes me laugh;
for loving parents and in-laws and out-laws;
for this great country – “amber waves of grain” and “purple mountain majesties”;
for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”;
for a gracious God from whom every good thing comes, who pursues us tirelessly, blesses abundantly, and draws us mercifully to Himself.
His faithfulness is never-ending. Amen.
