~Be Thankful~

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

also thankful for the setbacks.

Hey Velma! :) I love your thankful post...I am SO thankful for everything God has allowed us to have, but more than earthly things, I'm thankful for his love, mercy, and faithfulness!
I'm glad you like my little mouskers....well you like them at my house and not yours! lol I was thinking of keeping a few of them up for Christmas too..I think they're sweet! (as long as they're the paper kind! lol)
