I am thankful to Jesus for many things throughout my life.
Let me say just some of them.
I'm thankful for the problems I had as a baby
because of complications in my birth.
I am thankful for what all I went through because of it
as a child and teenager
but even since then.
I'm thankful for the experiences of losing loved ones
and friends since childhood in death.
That has given me understanding for others who have lost
and who lose loved ones that way.
I am thankful for all kinds of rejection I have experienced since I was a baby
No matter what the reasons were
I am thankful for the struggle even to survive
during birth and childhood.
I am thankful for the accidents I have had
Even the ones that could have taken my life.
I am thankful for the experiences of being homeless
And almost being made homeless through no fault of my own.
You might ask why?
It was all part of making me a stronger, better person
But top of the list is
That it proved that Jesus was and will always be with me.
Thank you Jesus for all of this.
