I’m grateful everyday. I have to admit, that my blessing are not always foremost in my thoughts…laundry, kids, home improvements…yes. Blessings, no.

Until life’s emergencies roar in and you see the devastating results in the news footage on tv and online.

Until life’s emergencies roar in and you see the inspiring and heroic results in news footage on tv and online.

I’m so grateful for my family.

I’m so grateful for my home.

I’m so grateful for my hubb’s job.

I’m so grateful for the opportunities available to our family.

I’m so grateful for the services provided by our government-

those who educate us
those who research, discover, and explore
those who protect and serve us
those who put our lives ahead of their own
those who inspire and lead us

I’m so grateful…again.
