Thankful and Blessed

Thanksgiving is a few days away which means my mind is in overdrive on those
things for which I am thankful.

Although this blog post has potential of being the longest in blogosphere history, I will refrain myself from expounding on everything.  (Now that’s something you can add to your “thankful” list!).

     My husband is my rock and I am very blessed.  Marriage is a series of ups and downs, and regardless of how bad the “downs” get, Michael is always there with unconditional love and constant encouragement.

     My dad and uncle who trust me enough to care for them.  They bring daily joy as well as entertainment.  I love hearing their life experiences (which may end up in a book someday).

    My mom who, although not here physically, continues to guide me with her example of faith and courage.

    My son and step-daughter, their spouses and children who are a source of great love and pride.

     My extended family of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins that have consistently shown compassion and support.

    My friends who put up with me, “warts and all”, and are always there to offer their understanding and wisdom.

     My publisher and author friends who guide, teach and inspire me every day.
 My prayer is that I, in turn, do the same for all of them.

Most importantly, I am thankful for the love and mercy I receive from God each and every day.  I’m sure He watches me at times, shakes His head saying, “Patti, Patti, Patti” … But, hopefully, there are also times He smiles and says, “Good job”.
