Today is my first Thankful Thursday post. I've been reading them for a while now, from my daughter's blog.
Today I am especially thankful for my parents.
My Mother lives in the town where I do and I am able to see her regularly. I am thankful for her guidance through the years. I am thankful that she's close so that I can lend a hand when she needs it. I am thankful that she's in good health and able to get around so well.
My Daddy passed away in December 2005. I miss him each day and am thankful each day that he is/was my Daddy. I'm thankful that he taught me how to change a flat, change oil (although I take it and have it done) and listen to what a lawnmower sounds like when it doesn't want to start and know what to try next! He taught me the importance of integrity and honesty. He taught me that a parent loves and supports their child, always.
I'm thankful for the relationship I had/have with both of my parents. I am thankful that God gave them to me!
I am thankful this week for the freedom's we have due to those who served to secure them.
