I’m thankful for you

This Thanksgiving I have something new to be thankful for—all of the readers and people who stop by this blog to check out the information.  I light up when I see I have a new comment on the site or find a new follower has signed up.  I appreciate the e-mails you all have sent me and your kind words and encouragement.  This blog has been very fun and has provided me with an opportunity to get to know many great members of the blogging community.  I’m especially grateful for all of the friends and family who have encouraged me to undertake blogging, all of the ongoing support that each of you have given me to help others via couponing.  Most of all, I’m thankful for my kind and caring husband.  His support, instruction, and assistance in this blog has been such a blessing to me.  He never ceases to amaze me—he knows how to do just about anything and everything and does them well!  How is it possible that I found such a wonderful partner and friend!  I know God gave me a wonderful gift when He gave me my husband. 

This year has had its challenges.  I’m always reminded of what I tell patients with whom I’ve worked.  I don’t know the answer to the age old question, “Does our Higher Power make the bad things happen to us or allow them to happen to us?”  I do know that our Higher Power can work with us to make the bad things that happen to us work for good though.  Time and again I’ve been told by people that they are only able to make sense of hard times because they can use those experiences to encourage, support, and assist others.  Perhaps that is why I’ve enjoyed blogging so much this year—it allows me to focus on what I can do to help others.  If ever you doubt how your life might touch others,  know that a perfect stranger to you (that would be me) appreciates the fact that you chose to stop in and share your time.  Thanks for reading!

I hope your Thanksgiving holiday and week are filled with many blessings.  I hope you take the time to savor it all!  Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
