Thank You Lord

...for a great day tomorrow with family and to give thanks.

...for hope!  (Psalm 33)

...for two healthy girls and for my own health.

...for a hardworking, dedicated, and loving husband.

...for great friends who step up to help me when a need suddenly arises.

...for the great readers here and all of the new ideas and fun things that I've been doing with my kids thanks to the inspiration of many of the people who share here!

...for the resources to provide gifts for my kids on Christmas.  Lord, you know how move I was when the Pastor's wife shared on Sunday that sweet Louie in El Salvador told her that Santa Claus doesn't come down there.
Orphans in El Salvador are thrilled to recieve the smallest gifts.

Readers,  what are you thankful for today?  

If you want to help send presents to El Salvador, a group of women from my church are going in early December, and you can make donations on their website:

I won't be posting tomorrow, so have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
