I'm thankful when learning to read turns a corner and the reader first picks up a book because he wants to read it. May it continue!

I'm thankful the Lord has given me friends, true friends, near and far who have taken the time to know me -- and still love me. I don't know what they say to the Lord when they pray for me, but that's probably best. I have no doubt He answers their prayers.

So grateful for my health. I'm not the "picture of" it, but I'm thankful for it.

I'm thankful that I feel safe on so many levels.

I'm thankful for the trio of azaleas, wisteria, and bridal wreath -- the deep pinks, the lavenders, and the whites that love to bloom beside one another for a brief but beautiful welcome of spring.

And more...
