THOUGHTS OF THANKFULNESS INSPIRED BY OTHERS!!

This year has been good to my family and friends.  It has had it’s ups and downs—but over all —I  have a few things that I would like to highlight today. 

My son graduated from junior highschool—actually a 9 year relationship with a Lutheran School has now come to an end.  That school,  although it  was a bittersweet relationship with me—  the schools  teachings helped my son to overcome the devastating loss of his father and my husband nine years ago.  —

So now my son attends a public high school called World Journalism Preparatory!!!  It is fabulous!—The principal and her staff have a goal to reach the kids through writing—and  it works!!!  My son writes his own blogs about class work—isn’t that great?  I used to critque his writing that he did on paper—you know the mistakes and errors etc.—But now it is completely out of my hands—He blogs to his teacher about American History—or even the science homework.  Even his math class has a blog that he is required to respond to daily.  School has certainly changed—for the better!!! 

My son has friends at school,  and he feels comfortable—For that I am truly thankful—teenage years can be very difficult— My son is very talented with his tennis playing and for that I am truly thankful—-Tennis Kids are a great bunch of children for your kids to associate with!!!

I had suffered chest pains earlier in the year and I was able to be evaluated and let go from the hospital— I am truly thankful for my heart health!!!!

My Mom had  been sick earlier this year—-Yes I am truly thankful for the miracle of doctors, and nurses and all related service providers who helped my mother!!

I have a job to go to everyday….It is not the most high paying job—but it keeps a roof over my head (read my blog on the price of rent today)  –My job has paid for health coverage, 911 medical calls for my son who has a medical condition (he does not like to be babied about it)–hospital stays,  medicine,  eye glasses,  and dental coverage are all in cluded—-So yes I have a great deal to be thankful for—-

NO,  I am not Ophra Winfrey—-I will never be a billionaire—-I am not BEyonce—even though I can sing —I am 47 and no one wants me to jump all of my 265 pounds across a stage and sing at this point in my life—-But I do sing when asked—-read my blog on (Who is Lisa JOY)–

Yes—we can be thankful for the little and  big blessings in our lives!!!!  —-to be continued as the season progresses….. I  will talk about sales,  and gift items soon!!! (read my blog on Flea Market shopping!!!)
