  2. What a timely post. Thanks for the reminder. I have found myself doing nothing but complaining and wallowing in a depressed spirit lately. As I have taken time off work to be with my mom (who lives with us) who is in her last stages of cancer, dealing with my husbands recent layoff and being exhausted beyond belief with no help from siblings with the care of my mom I have found very little time to be thankful.
    But, I have so much to be thankful for…
    Friends who have come together and started a meal train and will prepare meals for my family the ENTIRE month of December (Thanks you Jesus!)
    My super hero brother who is taking care of my ailing father in another state (Thank you Lord!)
    My job who understands my situation and assures me weekly that my mom is my priority and that I should not worry about the workload as it will be handled (Thank you Father)
    My husband who rubs my back, holds my hand, wipes my tears and doesn’t fuss when my mascara stains his shirt (Thank you Savior)
    My church family who loves me and it shows in their gestures, words, acts, and deeds (Thank you God)
    I could go on and on but I will not because as I sit here I am thankful for so many things and I make a vow right here and now to no longer allow the devil to make me focus on the negative so that I become blinded by the positives.
    Sorry about taking up so much space, but I needed this so bad at this very moment. God Bless you, you have certainly blessed me today!

  3. Hi Mrs Flanders, I was wondering whether your books were translated into French? Wishing you a wonderful thanksgiving with your family, best regards Sylvie

    1. Thank you, Sylvie. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and will have a happy New Year, too. I’m sorry to say that none of my books are currently available in French. Do you know a good translator? 🙂
