i am thankful that i have found myself short on time here because time with my family has been long
i am thankful for Love and the love that flows because of Him
i am thankful for family and for friends and friends who are family and for my family of adoption, as we cry out, "Abba, Father"
i am thankful that this week has been full of wonderful moments and not so wonderful moments, which i am still learning i can give thanks through them all
i am thankful that here, in this counting i am drawn closer to the Giver of all gifts
i am forever greatful and forever counting - - and as i have heard the Sacred echo here, there, and everywhere: gratitude leads us to Grace
