Happy Thanksgiving


I’m thankful for…

  • A little girl who likes Homer and Louisa May Alcott for bedtime stories.
  • A little girl who interrupts the bedtime story to ask about words or expressions she doesn’t understand.
  • A freshly painted guest room—and all the people who will use it.
  • Just enough time at the end of my day or week to learn something new.
  • A very loving, very understanding wife.
  • The Mercer University Children’s Choir.
  • Churches that believe in adult Bible study—I’d be out of a job without them!
  • The ability to get some money out of savings, load up the car, and go visit family far away.
  • The Adult, Too Sunday school class.
  • The book of Genesis.
  • The Macon Symphony Orchestra.
  • The ability to buy a couple extra cans of vegetables for my church’s Crisis Closet.
  • The Beatles.
  • GoogleBooks
  • Students who smile at me when they “get it.”
  • Phở
  • Dr. Rick Wilson’s continued confidence in my suitability to serve as an adjunct professor at Mercer University.
  • The alphabet.

What are you thankful for?

    What a delightful list! I am thankful for:

    Sunshine in the almost-winter sky.
    My wonderful husband.
    Having my granddaughter, Trinity, living right down the road.
    A job. It’s not my dream work…but it is work, and worthwhile and brings in a check, which many do not have these days.
    Son Josh coming here next weekend to celebrate his 32nd birthday.
    Turkey sandwiches.
    The Beatles
