.....

sometimes I don't know what to say.. there are just too many streams going thru my mind. I want to just get it all out... this week there were some families I know that were really really sick, small ones that were not able to keep any fluid down, there were layoff's at a large company in town and it affected those that I know, the papers are filled with the "what is going on... mentality" so for today I am choosing to be thankful.
thankful for a plane that didn't crash, but floated till all were out safely
thankful for parents who are with me and not already passed on
for a child who is deathly afraid of the future that applied for 5 colleges
for that same child who got a "A" in her most challenging class
for our funny dogs who cuddle and make us laugh just when we need it
for a husband that called me this week, the veil of suicide seemed to slightly lift
for a trip this week to some sunshine and friends
for the random greeting cards that I got reminding me that people are still praying
for the insurance company who refuses to pay my huge medical bills but paid on unexpectedly
for my job, and those I work with
for my store and the place of refuge people really find it to be
and for a Lord and Savior who despite my struggles and lack of focus is never so committed to me as today.

and you... what can you see that is good...
