Thankful Month #1

none of my family are consistent bloggers. my 83 yr old mother actually blogged for awhile but has gone on to more important writing adventures, which i applaud. so when i write something on my blog i have to forward it to them so they will see it. they don't get the "go visit your fav blogs each day or several times a day! to see whats new" so i sent them my blog about doing the thanksgiving challenge. i encouraged them to start their own thankful list. and then, (the point to which i'm getting to here), i told them how thankful i am for them, the women in my life. i have a wonderful godly mother, 2 wonderful sweet sisters and an equally wonderful sisiter in law who lives here in idaho. it has been so fun to live in the same town after the many years of being in different states or cities.

i'm thankful for their voice in my life, for the love and care they deposit into my love tank, for the sound of their voices when we get to chat on the phone or face to face. i'm richer becuz of these women in my life and i wouldn't have it any other way. except maybe that we could all live closer!

so what are you thankful for today? and are you going to join me in the thanksgiving challenge?

So glad you decided to join the challenge. I am thankful for my moms and sisters, too, though we live all across the country. =(
