Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for continuing blessings in my life. These include:

Though she is still very forgetful, my mother is speaking very lucidly most of the time. I try to stimulate her interest in various things each day to help her along.

I have been able to make preparations to host the family for Mother’s Day dinner on Sunday here at my home. My brother and his wife and son, and my youngest sister, her husband, son, and daughter will be attending.

Even though I awoke today with seemingly every joint in excruciating pain, I was still able to go out and run important errands. Back home, in between breaks for rest, I was able to prepare lunch for my mother and I and attend to other matters.

You are my God, and I will give you thanks:
You are my God, and I will exalt you.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
His love endures forever
Psalm 118: 28-28 NIV
