This week has been a week of reflection as we have remembered 9/11 and all it involved. I have been extra thankful this week for our soldiers and their families as they give so much so we can have so much. I am especially thankful this week for the soldiers who are in Iraq and Afghanistan today. I pray for their safety and that God will unite them with their families again.
I am also thankful that my sweet dog Josey will be having her second litter of puppies. And they will be ready for Christmas! Raising Yorkies helps us out financially and Christmas puppies are the greatest. Not only do they sell, they make other people very happy.
I am thankful for times of spiritual growth. Sometimes it's hard to be thankful for that because growth sometimes hurts. But in the end it is well worth it. I always am thankful for the "mountain-top spiritual experiences" but I have to remember that part of their purpose is to refresh and restore us for the times when we have to go in to the valley.
