The greatest gifts we can give to others are those that are free; the gift of ourselves, our love, our time. The most valuable gifts we have are our children, our family, our loved ones and the relationships we have with them.
In this day and age when wealth and possessions are often more highly valued, many people have lost sight of what matters most. The emphasis on making money and gathering possessions has taken the place of creating lasting memories with the people in our lives who should be our priority.
What do you value most?
My hope and prayer for Thanksgiving this year is that people will take the time to reflect and focus on what is most important, rather than that which is fleeting; that relationships with family and loved ones will be restored and highly valued, just as they should be.
My prayer is that the family unit will once again be restored to its rightful place.
I'm thankful for:
My husband Michael
who is kind, loving, supportive, understanding and compassionate.
My 4 wonderful children; Sarah, Daniel, Ben
, who have given me the opportunity to be a Mum. I love all of them dearly, they have brought me incredible joy, and I am extremely proud of each one of them.
My son-in-law, Oscar
(married to Sarah).
My daughter-in-law, Angie
(married to Daniel), and my 4 beautiful grandchildren; Matthew, Annabelle, Sophia
and little Olivia
, all such blessings.
My amazing Parents
who have been such a fantastic support to me throughout my life.
My 5 "other-daughters" (I dislike the term "step"), Amy, Tamsyn, Kathryn, Jess & Lizzie.
Five more children to love.
H A P P Y T H A N K S G I V I N G!
