Good Friday.


I thank God for my Savior, Jesus Christ.

I thank God for my husband and the good life we share.

I thank God for my four children and the good people they have grown to become.

I thank God for my four grandchildren (yes, I do include the babe arriving in September).

I thank God for my SoldierSon, MudPuppy (Almighty God, please bring him home safely!)

I thank God for each and every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine, who protect our nation and the goodness our forefathers and veterans have worked so hard to achieve.

I thank God for the world He created and the goodness I wake to each morning.

I thank God to be an American; enjoying the freedoms and pride of our country.

I thank God for my home and the good feeling each time I enter.

I thank God for my family, friends and neighbors; and the good times we share.

I thank God for my job and the good people I meet there each day.

I thank God for all the little things; such as the smell of fresh sheets and sweet aromas from flowers and food.

I thank God for all the talented bloggers, who make me laugh, cry and think.

I thank God for the 94 people who follow my Blog, who care about our Military as much as I do.

I thank God for the 10,000 visits to my Blog; people who have taken the time to read my words, pray with me for our country and share their words with me as well.

I thank God.

Airman Mom,
I'm not a "faithful" follower of your blog, but I check in as much as I can and I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for all of the time you put into it and all of the support that you show to everyone; especially those in our military and most especially to Mud Puppy. As someone who loves him very much and is anxiously awaiting his return home it means a lot to know that you (and all of your followers) are constantly thinking of him and keeping him in your prayers. I know that you have become very special to him. Thank you so much for including him in your prayer today.
Happy Easter!

jeanne...your comment has blown me away! Thank you! The warmth of your words is so genuine. I do love MudPuppy, he is in my constant prayers. How blessed you are to know him, perhaps one day I will have the chance to meet him. If that moment is to ever occur, it will be one of the most precious of my life....if it is not meant to be, know that my heart is filled with love and respect for him always!
I thank you for your kind words!

coffeypot...Easter is so much more than the bunnies and eggs, but hey, I have eggs for my grandgirls first Easter Egg Hunt, so I have no problem with the 'fun'! We must always be mindful and heartful of the real reason for the Easter Season!

AM,

This is a fantastic thankful list. We do have so much to be thankful for.

Enjoyed catching up. The photo below is very nostalgic. God Bless each of those Vets who take care of the Wall. I've been there several times and the power that is felt there is amazing.

Wishing you and yours, including Mud Puppy, a very Happy Easter.

Blessings,
Mary
