Thankful or Not

What am I thankful for? There are so many things I can't count them. God has blessed me in so many ways it is unbelievable. No I am not rich but I do have a good job where I can afford to provide a roof over my familys head. I have my health though it is not perfect I am doing OK for my age and my family has their health. Right now I have a friend fighting for his life against the retched disease called Cancer so I am thankful that we have our health. I am thankful for I was born in a country that I am able to worship freely in. God helps me get through everyday life, the ups and downs. I am thankful that I have a great family and that I married into a Christian family one that loves me for who I am. I have a mother and father n law who raised four great boys and showed them the love it takes in a marriage and how to love God. How great is that we should all be lucky. I have come a long way in my life to stay how thankful I am. One day I will discuss where I have come from but it is nice to know that God is in control and he had a plan for me. He knew I wouldn't take those pills and drink that alcohol that night when I was 15 and he knew just where to put that Bible. Thank God. So when I look around and see all the great things God has done and is still doing I say Thank you God with all my heart.

It bothers me when my children are blind to all of those things. They see the things they don't

have. Like three of our friends are building big homes and all my daughter sees if that our house is not as big as theirs. They are blinded by jealousy. How to do you open their eyes. Wouldn't they be sad if I developed a horrible illness or would they wonder if I why I couldn't have an illness like such and such? I know that sounds stupid but how do you make them see life ?

Today someone said they hated me and that hurt to the core of my soul especially when so much has been provided to them. All I could do was to be silent. But those words hurt me so bad it almost ruined the day for me. She said them so forceful they went straight to my heart!

So I have shared somethings I am thankful for and some I am not. Good Day
