30 days of Thanks--day 3

You know this really shouldn't be this hard!!  But I've had such stinking thinking lately, I'm having trouble with this!!  Isnt' that sad?!?!?!  We are to give thanks in all things. 

"It is good to give thanks to the Lord to sing praises to Your name, O Most High." Ps. 92:1

My daughter gave me such good advice the other day.  She said, "you need to quit being a negative Nellie and start being a positive Patty!" Ouch!  How did she get so smart? 
So today I'm thankful for my dear daughter, Jessica.  She has grown/is growing into such a beautiful, wise woman.  She brings me joy, fusses at me when I need it, encourages me to be more than I think I can be, has such a love for God, life, her husband, family and friends.  And I miss her terribly!!  She and her husband have made their home in TN, 5+ hours away.

I'm thankful that God answered my prayers and placed 'mommas' around her cause I couldn't be there as often as I want.  Thank God for cell phones, fb and texting!!

It is hard isn't it? That is why I am challenging myself to do this. Have a great day!
