A Season of Gratitude


Today I give thanks for my job and for Brian’s job at the fire department.

I see so many suffering around me…out of work and on the edge of financial disaster.

My heart breaks for them.

I know many of you are in a difficult place.

Praying for the people around me who are struggling.

Praying for my blogger friends who are trying to make ends meet.

Praying for our country…

There are some things in life you just can't take for granted because you never really know when life as you know it might come crashing down.

I am thankful for all the Julie's and Brian's in the world who choose such noble professions and perform their jobs with humility and grace.

We are thankful for jobs, too. My husband's job has been in jeopardy several times over the last three years. He was without work 4 years ago, so we know all about trying to make ends meet.

Thanks for praying...we've struggled in our family with health issues. I appreciate your faithfulness to pray!

Hugs...

I am sure, somewhere out there, you have been included in someone's prayers of gratitude. With all that you have done, you surely have been a blessing to others.

you and your husband each have a job that gives back tremendously to the community of people around you. You both look out for the welfare of strangers. I hope people are grateful for both of you. Have a happy Thanksgiving.

Julie,

How are you? So great to hear from you again. I love your post. It is really a season of Thanksgiving from our family as well. I agree, so many of our close friends and family are really struggling. My heart goes out to everyone who has to deal with that right now.

You have the sweetest heart! I love how big the kids are getting. I have been soo disconnected since my job started in August.

Miss you!!!

Приветики! Хотелось бы открыть парикмахерскую, ищу любую полезную информацию для написания бизнес плана. Может у кого-то есть опыт в таком бизнесе? Сейчас большой выбор оборудования для парикмахерских и салонов красоты. Выбираю между компаниями Scraber.com.ua, Rs-sonic.com.ua, Beauty-combine.com.ua, Массаж-Сервис, магазин Венко .В таком количестве информации самой разобраться тяжело( Скажите где дешево купить войлочные насадки для ногтей?
