Thankful Thursday ~ March 4

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
I Thessalonians 5:16-18

Today is my son, Tommy’s 13th birthday, so my thankful thoughts naturally are centering on him. Poor guy has been sick on the couch for the last 24 hours, but seems to be perking up a little and may be able to enjoy his birthday a little bit today after all. Here is my thankful list in honor of my sweet son, Tommy –

~ I am thankful for Tommy’s life and the blessing he is to our family.

~ I am thankful for his easy-going nature and his helpful spirit.

~ I am thankful for his love of family, tradition, and celebrating.

~ I am thankful for his spriritual growth in the the past year, and his committment to Christ.

~ I am thankful for the Lord’s protection over his life during his birth 13 years ago (he was my only breech baby/C-section birth).

~I am thankful for his wonderful sense of humor, and his love of laughter.

~ I am thankful for his big blue eyes that remind me of my grandfather when I look at him.

~ I am thankful to God for blessing us with such a special person as Tommy in our family!

Happy Birthday, Missur Tom!
