Thankful Thursday

I love T.T. because it gives me a chance to reflect on the good stuff in my life and there's soooo much of it. Thank you Sonya Lee for starting this and if anyone wants to participate click on the pic. 
Five I'm grateful for this week. 
1. My family - they're the absolute best and give me the security I didn't have growing up. This includes extended members as well.  We're Jewish and they still accept and love me in spite of my stand as a believer.
2. the amazing friends I have who accept me for who I am and who have been a constant in my life - having experieneced so many people coming and going I am so thankful for these people who are like awesome pillars helping me to stand strong and who have been steady constants in my life.
3. For this inner strength I discovered I have - a push to fight - an ability to stand strong regardless of what happens.  I'm so thankful God built that into me.
4.For all the material things - I have been given so much. Having lived on the streets, living hand to mouth - I am amazed at where God has brought me financially.
5. Most of all - my faith in the Creator - without Him - I would have nothing, be nothing - My connection to Him makes life worth living.

#3.... I like it. May you never loose the use of your own two legs, the strength of your own will and the abatement of your own will to let His will be done. Blessings to you. Tammy
