I am joining Ann Voskamp from A Holy Experience in listing my “gifts” or things I’m thankful for each week. Here are some things I am thankful for from yesterday which was Mother’s Day.

1. I’m thankful for my mother and the fact that I got to see her. I know a lot of women have lost their mothers, don’t communicate with their mothers, or don’t live close to their mothers.

2. I am thankful that my sister and I got to visit my stepmom’s grave but more than that I am thankful that I will see her again in Heaven.

3. I am thankful that my mom and my children were kept safe yesterday. They were in a minor auto accident on their way to my house and I am thankful that they weren’t injured (other than a few sore muscles).

4. I am thankful that I was able to sleep in yesterday, even if it was only a couple of hours. I woke up feeling refreshed and that was a great feeling.

5. I am thankful for Starbucks Iced Mochas. That was my treat yesterday for Mother’s Day :)

What are you thankful for?
