I'm grateful my L-rd doesn't leave me to myself, but loves me enough to take me through tough training ground.

I'm grateful for so many answered prayers, for money saved unexpectedly, and for time with friends I haven't seen in a long time.

I'm grateful that you're back on solid ground, too.

I'm grateful as well for my sister and for my best friend. Without either of you, my life wouldn't be near as blessed.

I love your long list of thankfulness this week. I love you!!!
