Here are the rules:
1. Write down five things that you're thankful for.OK, so here are five things I'm thankful for:
2. Tag five friends who you'd like to see participate in this meme.
3. (Optional) Include a link to this post and encourage others to place a link to their completed meme in the comments section of this post so we can keep track of the thankfulness running around the blogosphere.
1) Health. I don't mean to sound corny, but the older I get and the more I see and hear of people in pain and distress from health problems, the more thankful I become for my health.
2) My husband. What do you say without sounding corny? We were married late and have only been married 15 years versus some friends 25 or 30 years, but we are a fantastic team.
3) My ministry. What do you say this without sounding arrogant? This is a 'second career' for me. Being a minister of word and sacrament was not something women did when I was growing up. It's an awesome thing to be called to and it's a wonderful privilege to be able to do it in mid life.
4) Friends. No really. We see God in the people around us and we feel his love by giving and receiving love.
5) Music. Music makes the sould dance.
I don't really like tagging people. Please feel free to do the meme yourself and post your thankfulness on John's blog.
