I know that what the card said, what the scripture said, is exactly what my mother thinks of me. It meant more to me than I ever let on. I've kept it all these years. I hope my children will keep it, along with a copy of this post, so my grandchildren will know how important is to tell people that they matter. It is especially important to thank God for the people in our lives. That lesson was the gift that I received from that card.
In honor of that card, I created the first of this year's Thanksgiving Cards for husbands.
When I count blessings, at Thanksgiving and always, I count relationships first. So, first off, I am grateful for my relationship with my Savior. I remember what life is like without Him. I am very grateful that He would rescue "a soul so rebellious and proud as mine".
Then I count, as my second great blessing, the relationship with my husband. I also know what life is like without him. I am grateful for the happiness he has brought into my world. It is for him that I created this card. Feel free to share it with your beloved husband as well.
