I sat down and thought about what i'm thankful for and i started typing, but there seemed to be no end to it, but i got a summary of it all, and it was all about what I as a person, Your daughter is thankful to You for:

Dad, I'm so thankful for all that is me, and that includes "You".
I'm thankful to You 'cos there were many times i thought to myself "It could have been me" positively or negatively. But You knew why it wasn't me.
I'm thankful to You 'cos of the friends You've allowed my way
I'm thankful to You 'cos in my smallness Your greatness is exalted.
I'm thankful to You 'cos in searching for peoples' acceptance without assurance, You offered me Yours' with outstrectched arms.
I'm thankful to You 'cos in my shame, You became the lifter of my head.
I'm thankful to You 'cos anytime i feel like a nobody, i know You're the SOMEBODY i can run to.
I'm thankful to You 'cos thru my pain and struggles, You gave me a new song.
I'm thankful to You 'cos You counted me worthy of being mindful of.
I'm thankful to You 'cos You never gave up on me.

For my past and the message in it, i say Thank You
For my family and our journey as a whole, i say Thank You
For the breath of life and the gift of yet another second, i say Thank You
For my tears and my emotions, i say Thank You
For being the change in my generation, i say Thank You
For my strength and my existence as a woman, i say Thank You
For Your calling concerning my life and it's fulfillment, i say Thank You
For my future and its bountiful provisions, i say Thank You
For my future kids, the joy they'ld bring to us, i say Thank You
For wisdom bestowed as a parent and my motherhood skills, i say Thank You
For my future husband and the presence of You in him, i say Thank You
For the gift of Your love, grace, patience and tolerance in my marriage i say Thank You
For writing my love story, i say Thank You
For being a witness to this confession and bringing it to fufillment, i say THANK YOU!

Aren't You the God who even angels gasps at the wonder of Your holiness, or can't capture Your divine magnificence? Then who am i not to be thankful?
Dad, i'm so thankful for ALL that is me and all that includes You.

When i think 'bout all those ungrateful moments and attitude of mine, all i can honestly say is Dad, I'm SORRYFULLY THANKFUL to You and that includes ALL that is me.
I tag Disgodkid and Pstr. Emmanuel for Day 23 .
Happy Thanksgiving everyone, i hope you all stop for a second and think about why He deserves our thanks, not just today but always. And yes, i'm thankful to God for you (the reader) 'cos you're part of ALL that is me.
Have a great weekend ahead, and i should update soon on my PDL reading. Have a funfilled and fufilled end of the week.
