Last week Grace brought home from school some things she was thankful for, and the list inspired Dan and I to think of some things WE are thankful for every day:

~every sunrise and sunset
~every hug and kiss
~each other
~ the gift of our children
~our parents who love and guide us
~our family and friends who have become our family
~our health
~that we have a home to live in and food on the table
~the many opportunities that we have been given--education, travel and to choose where we live and work
~the opportunity to give back to others
~the difficult experiences we have gone through because they have made us stronger and more empathetic people
~that we have been led to adoption again
~that we live in a country where we have the freedom to vote for who we want to, have as many children as we like, and to worship freely
~and every single day we thank God for more blessings than we can count :)

What a great list! That's a great idea...I need to make a list as well. There are so many things I'm thankful (and all the others that are supporting us on this journey) are one of them. Thanks!

What a great post! Thanks for sharing your thankful list. May we all never forget all that we have to be thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving!
