It is Tuesday and I am posting my thanks list which I usually post on Monday with Ann’s Multitudes on Monday community. It just didn’t happen on paper yesterday like it did in my heart. Thanks for grace, dear community, and I AM thankful for
#362 knowing how to calm a cough so I could sleep at night the past week.
#363 a church community who prays for my husband and cheers him on in his pastoral duties.
#365 the publication of a beautiful and sensitive children’s Christmas book illustrated by Jonathan Bean, brother of one of my former students. Jonathan dedicated the book to her two adopted sons, Stephen and Izayah
#366 an excellent educational conference I attended last week that spoke to me in so many ways and gave me real direction for decisions I have to make in my work.
#367 that I have a merciful God who watches over two friends of mine, Andrea Dawn and Cora, who are too far away for me to help.
#370 healing from my cold so I can prepare Thanksgiving brunch for my family.
