Happy Thanksgiving!

I wish each and everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  Families may far apart, but not in our hearts. 
There is much to be thankful for...and not just this time of year.
I am thankful for my family.  We have 2 strong healthy boys and a sweet daughter in law.  Our oldest and his wife purchased a home this year.  Both our boys were hired permanently by their employers.  They may not be the dream jobs but they are both working and making their way in this crazy world.  Timm still works for the same company after 33 years.  I'm thankful for the stablility and comfort it brings. 
We've been married 28 years.  I'm thankful to wake up next to Timm every morning.  I can't even imagine what my life would be like without him. He is my soul mate.
My parents will be married 50 next April.  I'm thankful they are such great role models for us and so many others.  They are kind to each other, loving and giving.  I'm thankful for the values and morals they gave me, I hope I have done the same for my children.  Lord knows I've worked hard at it. 
We've not traveled much this year, but am thankful for and have enjoyed the trips we've made.  It's comforting to know that the truck and toyhauler are now paid off.   One of the first thoughts when we did that was that we'll never be homeless.  lol
We've lost a couple of friends and family this year, but they are thought of often by many. Knowing they are in Heaven makes it more comforting but we still miss them down here.
Warm Thanksgiving wishes go out to all our friends and family on this day.  Share your homes and hearts with others, spread your hospitality and give of yourself.  Share you kindness, faith, and love with others. 
Happy Thanksgiving,
The Martin's
