I Am Thankful This Day

Dear God

I want to take this time, to Thank You for all the things that have made 
me the person I am.  Being born to a ranching family where things didn't
 come easy, not knowing we didn't have a lot, because  horses, 
dogs, trees to climb, creek to wade in, lot of room to be a kid and to not
 have fear of anything, was more valuable then gold.

Thank You for all the family vacations, like gathering cows and branding,
 hunting and fishing trips, camping under the open sky and all the family
 members who came along.   Grandparents, aunts and uncles, great aunts
 and uncles and a herd of kids of all ages.     It was great.

Thank You for the time I was on my own with no direction and free to wonder. 
 It had it's ups and downs, but showed me who I was and quickly
 what I believed in.

And Thank You for what I have today.  A family of my own.  A husband that
 works from first light till way beyond the setting sun, who has done good by 
this family, giving us a beautiful home and a place were our kids
 could grow up the way I did. 

And I can not Thank You enough for the three best kids ever.  Thank You 
that they are healthy, intelligent, loving and caring to others and each other.  
That they will never be a burden and who can stank on their own. 
  I am so very proud of them.

Thank You for our wonderful Son in Law,  he is a hard worker and treats our 
daughter like a queen.  He's a good man.  Thank You Thank You so much 
for our beautiful granddaughter.  She is perfect.

Thank You that I have so many friends that I can never repay all the
 dinners I owe.Thank You for new friends I have never met, 
but hope to someday.

Thank You God, that I have lived this life, my life and
 I have lived it as an American.
