Let's be thankful we had the Thanksgiving we did instead of one that might have been:
Steve and I woke up Thursday morning.
We could have been sleeping in a car or on the sidewalk, but we were in our nice warm house.
Steve made muffins, and checked on our dinner reservations
Lots of people went without a meal that day.
Steve had a heart attack and we called the ambulance.
How many people would not have called the ambulance because they don't have the insurance to pay for it? Or won't go to the hospital for the same reason?
The nurses and doctors at the hospital were awesome and gave Steve great care.
What if we had been some place where there is no real hospital?
Father David came right over to offer support and prayers.
Think of the countries where people are not allowed to practice their religion.
The doctors put two stents in Steve's heart and he will, most likely, be better than ever.
He might have died.
All in all, we have MUCH to be thankful for; not that our Thanksgiving didn't suck (because trust me - it did). But the alternatives are so much worse.
God is good.
All the time.
