Gratitude the week before Christmas

Lots to be grateful for this time of year, and so grateful for so many people in my life! Here’s my list:

  • a life spared for a dear family (Thank you Lord!)
  • being allowed to help others
  • discovering a new hobby and the enjoyment it brings
  • glorious sunsets
  • frosty mornings
  • video cameras to record memories I might soon forget
  • watching 7 cousins perform a Christmas skit for their family –love their creativity!
  • boys with new spy watches and pretend crossbows
  • dads, cousins and a Grandad trying to figure out marble runs and lego sets
  • learning I’ll have a new cousin (by marriage) in 2013–I’m glad you look good in orange, M!
  • the service of my cousins in undisclosed locations during the holidays-and all the other days in between-this year and in the one to come–blessings to you and your family!
  • The creativity bestowed by the Creator, that gives us amazing music for this season to ¬†meditate, worship and delight in Him and His gift to us all. Here’s one I enjoy every year (thanks to Ann for linking to this several years ago!):
