I may have mentioned how Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Not for the food and football, although those are a bonus! It’s all about being surrounded by loved ones, sometimes I get to be with my family, and other times, like this year, I am loved and get to spend time with my extended family. I think that is pretty amazing. My fondest holiday memories include many celebrations with friends and family on this one day set aside for giving thanks. And today, like every day now, I am thankful, grateful, blessed. I can’t think of a more perfect song that says it all. I hope you find the day to be as amazing as I do.
“Blessed”Written by Brett James, Hillary Lindsey and Troy Verges Performed by Martina McBride
I get kissed by the sun each morning Put my feet on a hardwood floor I get to hear my children laughing Down the hall through the bedroom door Sometimes I sit on my front porch swing Just soakin’ up the day I think to myself, I think to myself This world is a beautiful place
CHORUS I have been blessed And I feel like I’ve found my way I thank God for all I’ve been given At the end of every day I have been blessed With so much more than I deserve To be here with the ones who love me To love them so much it hurts I have been blessed
Across a crowded room I know you know what I’m thinking By the way I look at you And when we’re lying in the quiet And no words have to be said I think to myself, I think to myself This love is a beautiful gift
When I, when I’m singin’ my kids to sleep When I feel you holdin’ me I know
CHORUS (I am so blessed)
