He is right.
So many big events happened this year for which I am grateful. My husband and I were able to retire from our jobs. We took an amazing trip to Europe. We celebrated forty years of marriage. We have a new grand baby on the way....
There are many other things I'm thankful for, too.
My great-nephew, Oliver, born at 25 weeks, weighing less than two pounds,
came home after five months in the hospital and is thriving.
Our nephew came back from surgery to pitch in the World Series this year.
I get to enjoy the company of my almost-92-year-old dad,
who still has his Navy uniform from 1945,
and it, like he, is in mint condition.
Texas has gotten back on its feet after Hurricane Harvey.
My dislocated thumb has healed after I took a fall last spring.
I am filled with happiness when I think about my two wonderful sons,
my two wonderful daughters-in-law, and my wonderful granddaughter.
Friends make life a rich experience.
I'm thankful for you all.
I'm thankful for my husband who, after forty years of marriage,
can still surprise me and make me laugh.
For all of these things and many more I haven't listed,
I am thankful.
What are you thankful for this year?
