And when I'm struggling, I try to remember this verse from Psalms:
"This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it."
When I think about this verse, I begin to focus on the things I'm thankful for, and some of the worries get pushed to the background.
On this Thanksgiving Day, I am thankful for so many things.
A loving, caring husband.
A great family that is pulling together to help with mom's health situation.
Wonderful friends who enjoy life with us.
Mike and I "chooglin" which comes from a John Fogerty song and means raucous good time.
The professionalism, skill, kindness and caring of health care providers.
Financial security and a roof over our heads.
My belief and trust in God.
The great beauty of nature.
I hope you have a great Thanksgiving with loved ones. And don't forget the thankful part...
