What Are You Thankful For?

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am SO thankful for so much! My biggest blessing in 2007 was the birth of my baby girl! If you know me...you know we have tried for SO long and our prayers finally came through. Everything happens for a reason on HIS watch...not ours.
I am thankful for my job, that helps support myself and my family, my loving parents that watch our new little one while we are at work, my new "family car", my degree that I finally obtained (hallelujiah!!!), food on the table, health, and so much more.

This morning, I woke up early and met up with my Sorors of ZETA PHI BETA SORORITY, INC! and some interest to help serve the homeless. This is a tradition that we do every year to help the less fortunate. We went early to help basically set up, get items cleaned up in the kitchen, set up tables and chairs, put tablecloths and centerpieces together, etc. This is an annual event that is held at the Brandin' Iron in San Bernardino near the baseball Stadium on "E" St. This is SO rewarding, because yes, I could had been at home with my family, others had meals to prepare, it was early, etc., HOWEVER....just think if we didn't have a stove to cook on, or any groceries to buy for our family, OR any family period...We take so many things for granted DAILY...
It is so rewarding to help others in need, it is nice to see people have a satisfying meal and enjoying their time with a smile on their face.

Remember to be thankful, think about what you have and what other don't have...
Stay Blessed...and don't forget to count your blessings.
