I can still remember feeling lonely, empty and desperate during the holidays. Now - it's different...I love this season...with its magic...and His love. This week....I'm really thankful for:
- opportunities to give back...my family's been helping out at a community outreach the last two weeks and on Christmas Day....we're hosting a family in need.
- the financial ability to bring a gift to people who've helped me..a small token of my gratitude to them for being in my corner. Seeing their smiles....makes me feel really good.
- Proud to be my girl's mom. My 10 year old got $20. from a friend. Even though I told her not to...she spent the whole thing on me...buying me a bear she knew I loved.
- for neighbours and friends and family who have shown me so much kindness and support....and that includes all of you guys. I am sooo thankful for you guys.
-I'm especially grateful for the touch of the power of His gentleness...it was His touch that turned my life around and filled the empty lonely places with so much love, peace and joy. I never knew this could ever be possible.
