Thankful Thursday

I am not following the theme this week for Thankful Thursday.

This week I have been reflecting on life. Just how fragile it can be and what an absolute miracle that life is!

I have been thinking about recent friends, and long lost friends and new friends, and even friends I call friend that I have never met!! I've learned that you can have a close friendship with someone you have never met--I have several people like that in my life. I have learned that you can have a close friendship with someone you have met, but do not live close to. I also have several friends like that.

And I have been reflecting on what a miracle that childbirth is!! It is incredible to me that a baby can grow to a living being inside a womb. It is absolutely incredible to me.

God is wonderful!! All I have to do is look around me, or even just look out the window to see His miraculous works!!

This week I am especially Thankful for my family and especially my Husband. I am thankful for my children--they bring me joy each day.

I am thankful for strangers I have never met--yet they have all pulled together as one tight community.

Today I am thankful.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
-- Psalm 23:4

I like the verse you ended with.

You know, it's funny that I've had the same thoughts running through my head somewhat recently.

God bless our dear friends. They have helped me to remain sane on too many occasions to count.

And, I have to say, I just LOVE reading your blog! :)
