THANKSGIVING by Judy DickeyI give thanks, Lord, for Time The time I had with Tim, time to grow and learn even when I'm no longer young, and time which will one day reunite me with my child. Friends Those that I've known that time had taken from me, those I cherish now, and those I've yet to meet. Answered Prayers I asked for comfort and strength to face what I must face and you answered me maybe not the way I wanted, but you always answered me. For Family And I find my family expanding with each day. I find relatives need not always be family, and family need not always be relatives. Love makes families not bloodlines. For the Children Those remaining mine and everyone else's. And for the ones that remain only in memory. For Love Love that's been given me so freely from hearts that were broken like mine but still could offer me strength and hope For all of you, I thank God.
