Giving Thanks – Days 9 & 10

by | Nov 11, 2010 | family, God, thankfulness

Yesterday I was reminded how very thankful I am of for God’s protection.  We pray every morning on the way to school for God to protect each one of us in our family.  I think, though, that we sometimes take for granted how God protects us and how He keeps us away from things or situations that may be harmful for us.  He is so faithful, and I continue to be thankful for that.

Tonight as I close my day down, I’m thankful for my parents.  I am thinking of both of them tonight, and how very much I miss them.  I miss Mom’s love, her advice, her listening ear, her support and encouragement, and her friendship.  With where I’m at in my life right now today, I really could use her loving words and encouragement.  I would give about anything to be able to call her tonight, to tell her how much I love her and appreciate her, and to be able to share with her what’s going on in our family’s life.  I miss Dad’s sense of humor, his laughter, his love and his smile.  I miss the security I felt when I was with him.  I miss being able to call him and ask him questions about my car.  He was so knowledgable about so many things.  I’m thankful for how they raised me, how they loved me and how they taught me to be independent and responsible.  I’m thankful that they never gave up on me when I was a rebellious teenager, but they loved me through my rebellion. 

I love them so much, and I miss them greatly.  The day can’t come soon enough when I will see them again in our heavenly home!
