How do you get through the first Thanksgiving without your life’s companion?  It helps to focus on what is good in your life.  I am thankful that —

Huni went to sleep today with a new velvet soft orangutang stuff animal that LR sent for me to give him for his 5th birthday.  He is two years away from the time when the Doctor in Budapest forecasts that he will outgrow his weak immune system that is a constant challenge.

I’m thankful the Small Group Discussion members like to meet around my kitchen table.

I’m thankful that Friday morning I had the opportunity to speak to the Advanced English High School Class.

I’m thankful that Friday evening I was able to share “my story” with 14 precious ladies in Malnas, a village about 20 minutes from here by car.

I’m thankful that Saturday Levy & Monica gave me 2 rose bushes AND planted them for me!

I’m thankful that Saturday afternoon, Vasile, Mimi and Camellia helped me prepare Harvest Dinner for the next day.

I’m thankful that I have a table to seat the 10 people who came for Harvest Dinner on Sunday.

I’m thankful that Jutka is still able to have a time for prayer in her home on Sunday evenings.

I’m thankful that Gusti and Aranka’s house is going to be ready for them to move in by Christmas.

Aranka chose a rich, "silky" yellow for the stucco exterior

I am thankful for loving friends and family here in Romania, the U.S., Ghana, Holland, Spain, and many other places in the world.

I am thankful for God’s love, and Jesus’ sacrifice for us…and that He is now alive, interceding for us in Heaven.  — Anne
