I have been blessed, and I feel like I’ve found my way.
I thank God for all I’ve been given at the end of every day.
I have been blessed with so much more than I deserve,
To be here with the ones that love me.
To love them so much it hurts.
I have been blessed.
— Martina McBride
Are you with the ones you love today? For me, the answer is yes and no. Some are near, some are far. Isn’t that the way with life for so many of us? Sun and shade, joy and sadness.
The scales are tipping way towards joy today, I’m happy to report! My family is celebrating Thanksgiving. My daughter is coming to town, my mom is bringing her famous corn casserole, and I’m making stuffing with wheat bread and cashews. Pumpkin bread is baked (and sampled–yummm!). And fresh flowers are on the table.
The best part, though, will be tonight, when I’ll be “here with the ones that love me.”
Oh, yeah, I have been blessed. And this season of thanks is a good time to revel in those blessings.
Linking up with a song-inspired party, Song-ography, where the theme this week is “Blessed.”
