I love today!

I am convinced that we so often live in the future and those "someday it will" mentality that we forget just to be happy and satisfied with today! Today I am thankful for a quiet house. For the sunshine and the leaves falling. For the washing machine humming. For a Tia-child that's getting better (from chicken pox). For planning a simple meal for tonight. I am thankful that even when you and I have disappointments God is with us: Psalm 40: 7-8 So I answered, "I'm coming. I read in your letter what you wrote about me, And I'm coming to the party you're throwing for me." That's when God's Word entered my life, became part of my very being.Tell me today what you are thankful for TODAY!
Love and a kiss
Wilna

I am thankful for my job and the flexibility it affords me to work from home, follow my interests and hobbies and spend time doing the things I need to. I'm thankful for my boyfriend, that he still loves me 20 years later....and for the sunshine we have today even though its "Fall" in New York. I'm thankful for having crossed paths with people like you who enrich my life and my thrill for the hobby I have chosen!

Have a super terrific day!

I am most thankful for my family -- my husband and son, and my parents... I am also thankful for the technician who came to my house and fixed my internet ;)

I am thankful for mothers who are strong and amazing in the face of challenges, I am thankful for 25 c weather in Sept, and for a God who shows His love for me on days when it feels like the world maybe isn't the kindest of places.

today, I am thankful that it is the end of a very emotional week. that I may refresh in Him and gather strength for decisions ahead.

hi daar my oulikste oulikste vriendin.. ek kom loer hier in, en voel sommer soos 'n vreemdeling in jou lewe.. die foto's van die kinders bring 'n knop in my keel en die jy.. die jy bring trane wat afrol oor my wange in verlange en in verwondering oor jou lewe, jou invloed, jou talent en jou karakter.
ek is vreeslik lief vir jou.
