A Thanksgiving Prayer

Thank you for blessing me with Will and Jenny.  Their presence is proof that I deserve good in my life.


Thank you for presenting me with the lessons I need.  Thanks, also, for your patience while I re-learn a lot of those lessons.


Thank you for knowing how much I can handle, and for not dumping it on me all at once.


Thank you for leaves to rake, fresh air to breathe, snowflakes to anticipate and the change in the seasons.


Thank you for each new quiet morning, the fullness of the day, and the tranquility of night.


Thank you for not taking me too seriously, and for not laughing at me when I do.


Thank you for friends – those who’ve come and gone and left their mark, and those who’ve stayed for the long haul.


Thank you for family and their impact on our lives.


Thank you for giving second, third and fourth chances so that I may continue to try and get it right.
