Today, I told my classes that I needed some volunteers to help me prepare lunch for tomorrow's guests who will visit the school. Several of them rose their hands. I told them that their volunteering also means that they will also have to do a lot of cleaning up after the event. I am thankful that none of them retracted.
Without Oscar's expertise with herb's and spices, the sauce for the lasagna that we will be serving tomorrow wouldn't have been half as good. I am thankful that Oscar accepted my request for him to stay for three periods, although he had to ask for his other teachers' permission.
Today is my friend Gloria's birthday. I am thankful that she accepted me as a friend and am doubly thankful that The Lord is beside her.
Although I am saddened with the news that my grandson Joshua has the symptoms of Apraxia, I am thankful that he is a healthy and intelligent child and that he has all the signs that he can recover from it.
I am thankful that I can trust and thankful that there are many who trust me, too.
For those who are also thankful this Thursday, please visit IRIS.
