When I count my blessings
Plus many others,
Are on the list.
My father – who taught me about hard work.
My mother – who taught me about faith.
My brother – who taught me to laugh.
My sister – who taught me what it means to honour your parents.
My extended family – who taught me the more family members you have, the more love you have.
My husband – who taught me the meaning of unselfishness.
My three grown children – who taught – and continue to teach – me more than I could ever teach them.
The friends I’ve known for years…
The friends I’ve met recently…
The friends I’ve never met in person…
All my friends – who’ve taught me my heart can hold great joy in ever-increasing measure.
If you’re reading this and don’t see yourself listed, know this: I am thankful for you too.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY
My Abba Father, my Saviour, the Holy Spirit – from whom all blessings flow.
