It’s been a week of new beginnings here on my blog. I migrated all my blogs into this one and separated them by category, and I implemented a new feature yesterday called Writing Wednesday. Today I’m adding yet another feature that I’ll call Thankful Thursday.
Basically every Thursday, I’ll write about something that I’m thankful to God for. Not only will it be a good writing exercise for me, but (most importantly) it’ll help me to remember all that I have to thank God for.
Today I’m going to start with the quintessential, “I’m thankful for my family.”
My parents, sibling, sister-in-law, niece, nephew, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins are all wonderful and supportive. I couldn’t ask for a better family, and I know I’m very blessed to have them. There was once a time when I took them for granted, and I missed out on so much when I lived states away from them, but like the father of the prodigal son, they welcomed me back with open arms when I returned home.
I know that not everyone is blessed to have such a family as mine, and I thank God for allowing me to be a part of such a loving family that practices love and forgiveness.
What about you? What are you thankful for this Thursday? Please feel free to leave your answers in the comments below.
