Thankful Series

Today I am thankful for a roof over my head, a warm bed to sleep in, and food to eat.

Over 11,200 children in my area are homeless, and the temperatures are going to drop here at the end of the week.  I feel very blessed for the warmth, full bellies, and joys that we have each day. I am so grateful for a home.


What are you thankful for today?

  5. I am thankful for my wonderful mom. She is such a strong part of our family. I am grateful she allowed us to move in with her so many years ago when we needed help. Because of this, my daughter is very close with her grandmother. I know these memories we’ve made while living here together will be very precious to all of us one day.

  6. I, too, am thankful for all that my home provides – shelter, warmth, safety, and comfort. I never take these things for granted, but give thanks to our God everyday for the peace and prosperity that we enjoy in our lives. We know where we will lay our heads at night safe and secure and that there will be food on the breakfast table in the morning. I wish that all humankind could be so blessed.

    Thank you Brandy and all the commenters.

  12. Today I am thankful for a friend that is helping guide me into a new way of eating due to my blood sugar being out of control. She has had great success and is willing to mentor me. The concept is so foreign from the way I am used to eating, that I feel completely lost. She will be a blessing to me.

  13. I am thankful for books to read and listen to for free from my library.
    And I wanted to share that today Amazon has the audiobook of Anne of Green Gables as a free download. Just go to the listing for Anne of Green Gables on Amazon and click on Audible version.

  14. I’m thankful for doctors and medications that keep me healthy both mentally and physically. The human body is an amazing thing. Take care everyone.

  15. I am thankful my hubby is still here with me – his health issues over the last year have been very trying but I am so glad I still have him to lean on and talk with.

  16. Ellie, I think there are several reasons for that. Besides the *normal* amount that are counted, but still with parents, living in cars, shelters, etc., I think LV has several special reasons. The weather is warmer year-around, the Strip part of the city never sleeps, leading to opportunities to make money or loiter easier, & these things attract runaways. Add in that there are religious cults in the general area that regularly dump boys in the city (the older men don’t like the competition) and it’s not hard to see why the number is so staggering. With the exception of the cults, I expect Los Angeles/Hollywood is similarly attractive for the same reasons. Plus, there are always those young runaways that are hoping to be professional dancers, actors, etc. They don’t realize that there is so much competition. It’s all very sad. My friend used to work at a place called Children of the Night in Hollywood.

  17. I am thankful for all the teachers I had that taught me to read. As I was reading my book last night, I thought about how easy that is to take for granted, but the amazing world that reading opens up!

  18. I am thankful for my friends who pray with and for me. Because of them I am stronger and happier.

    I am also thankful for dentists. I managed to knock out my front tooth (a very expensive and well done crown) last night and by tonight I have it back in albeit with titanium posts. Amazing! We were able to pay for it. Another blessing. I’ll be investigating a permanent solution and the insurance options but, for now, I’m OK! I can eat again and work.

  19. I too am so thankful for a roof over our heads. Wood to burn on our hearth. A stocked pantry and prescription medication to help with Shingles. Lol

  20. Debby, thanks for the explanations. They make a lot of sense. What a staggering number of childre, though.
    Thanks again.

  21. I am thankful for our old farmhouse that we have 7 years left on mortgage. It reminds me of my grandmas house when I was growing up. I even have her old corelle dishes. I love two story homes. I’m so grateful because we have everything we want in life. I pray life stays this way for the next 30 years.
