Thankful Series

I’m thankful for the visiting teaching program at Church. My companion is twice my age and has become a good friend. I really enjoy her company and friendship. We visited together for over an hour after we visited the sisters we visit from church. We first became friends when I was her visiting teacher. We have several things in common, and I might not ever have known that if I hadn’t become her visiting teacher a few years ago.

  6. I am thankful that my sweet daughter that is away at college will be home in two days for an entire week! We will have fun cooking thanksgiving dinner together and then decorating for Christmas before she has to go back.

  7. I’m grateful for the post office. My family is all in another country, far across the sea; and while we primarily e-mail, with a few odd phone calls here and there, the post office allows us to send packages back and forth when necessary. I’m grateful my family and I live in countries which are relatively free from corruption, so that we have a high level of trust, when we send a parcel, that the person on the other end will receive it. (We’ve lost a few over the years, all sent surface mail, but nothing sent via air mail, although from time to time a parcel will take much longer than anticipated. And when you think this is my 18th year of living overseas, 2 parcels in all that time is really minimal.) Having visited a number of countries over the years where any interaction with officials was expected to be accompanied by a bribe, it is a blessing to live in a country where that just does not happen, and to be able to take it for granted as often as I do.

  8. I am thankful my husband and I will soon be living under the same roof again. The absence, while difficult, has made me appreciate our relationship even more.
