for this i am thankful ...

our former backyard, at the cottage

Leo is continuing to improve ... for this i am thankful ...

our little kitten provides many "smile moments" daily ... for this i am thankful ...

the Word of God is alive and ministers to me ... for this i am thankful ...

my own health has been good ... for this i am thankful ...

and tho' some days are difficult, i have a Redeemer who is urging me to use my spiritual sight - and to not lean on my own understanding ... for this i am thankful ...

it is Sunday ... we participated in tv church, and felt the Spirit of God using a sweet bible teacher to minister to our spiritual needs ... for this i am thankful ...

for blogging friends who share and care ... for YOU, i am thankful ...

When things get difficult, it's always a good thing to count our blessings, one by one.

You're sounding a bit more at peace today.

It's inspiring to see you counting off all the little beauties in your life, Saija. Thank you.

I also wanted to let you know (since I can't find your e-mail address) that I really appreciated your comments this morning on my blog post. Your experience and knowledge in this area was enlightening to me. I can't imagine what it's like to live with daily pain--and am grateful I don't have to know it personally--but it's important to understand how it affects others.

We take so much for granted....
