My son brought home a list of "thank you's" from his church-school class this past Sunday.
Salamat tagalog (Filipino)
On this Thanksgiving week (my favorite holiday, by the way - devoid of gifty commercialism or continuous parties just delicious food, fun, family and friends), I am thankful for:
A nice, sturdy, house with a non-leaky roof
Plenty of food
Every single family member under my roof and under other roofs
A church to call my own with lots of friends there
My friends who live in other states and just down the road
My cell phone to call all those in other states (and those just down the road)
A reliable car
Enough money for gas for that reliable car
My husband's job
A Savior who gives me hope.
Don't think this is the full list. It's just the beginning. When I sit and write it all down, I realize I don't have one reason to complain. If something is not right, I need to sit and read this list and realize that enough is just as perfect as it can be this side of heaven.
