i love reading all of the posts and blogs of daily thanksgivings throughout the month of november...only, i didn't do it this year. not that i'm not thankful for anything...but that it was hard for me to see past what i didn't have to come up with things that i did have. 

i'm thankful for my family, but seems incomplete that 2 members of our little Ford family have been taken away

i'm thankful for friendship, but feel isolated at times because we don't relate to friends that have kids or babies or new pregnancies

i'm thankful for my home, but had visions of spare bedrooms becoming something different.  

but then....

in fact there is. 

i'm grateful for my husband. he works so hard to provide. provides a home. provides love. 

i'm grateful for cold weather that means cozy sweaters and a new season is here. 

i'm grateful for a workplace that prays and supports one another.

i'm thankful for friendships. running friends. work friends. old friends. new friends.

i'm thankful that God has a perfect plan for my life.

today. i am thankful for today. i walked outside with my dog and took in a deep breath of cool, fresh air. old is gone. new is promised. 

Let your hope make you glad,
Be patient in times of trouble
and never stop praying.
