Thank You

The words "Thank You" have such a powerful impact when you say them and when you hear them. But, it seems like many people have forgotten to be appreciative.

Have you ever cooked dinner for company and not gotten a "thank you for the meal"? Even if your company is family, a thank you is a nice gesture. It means they appreciated the effort you made to cook a meal, whether they like the food or not.

Or have you made or bought a wedding/baby gift for someone and never heard thank you? Or if the gift was mailed, never got an acknowledgment of any kind that it was received? I am not even talking about a thank you note, what about a phone call or email or even a text.

Thank You is so easy! Its great to say! Its a blessing to hear!

Do we always remember to thank the Lord for all he has blessed us with? Our families, homes, clothes to wear and food to eat? Or do we just go our merry way and forget about being thankful?

I am very thankful for the gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ. I am thankful for my dear husband and 7 beautiful children. I am thankful for my warm home, heat and electricity. I am thankful for my freezer and pantry full of good food. I am thankful for the appliances that make my job easier as a homemaker. I am thankful for the freedom to homeschool my children and share in their day to day lives. I am thankful for Greg's job and his willingness to be the "head of our family" and take care of us, so that I can be a stay at home wife and Mom. I am thankful for my craft supplies and my books to read that fill many happy hours. I am thankful for my friends, both here and in GA. I am thankful for my computer, I get to explore, read and get to know other folks through my blog and theirs. I am just plain THANKFUL!

What about you? What do you have to be thankful for?

  1. THANK YOU!!! two little words that mean a lot. My husband always says after dinner " Now let's say THANK YOU mom for a GREAT!!! dinner". But I just realize I don't think I've told him THANK YOU for saying that.
    Things I'm thankful for everything God has given me.
    THANKS!!! for sharing and helping me realize that I have forgotten to tell my wonderful hubby THANK YOU!!!


Welcome to the farm ~ we are a blended family with 7 children (3 are married), 4 grandsons, 5 dogs, 3 rabbits, and 15 chickens living on 3 acres in Georgia. I love crafting, sewing, cooking & canning, recipes of all kinds, reading, playing with my little buddies, family time, travel, pinterest and most of all the Lord.
