For These Things, I am Truly Grateful!

Many people use the month of November to post each day something they are thankful for.  My “thankful” list could be broken down to cover the 30 days of November and then some!  On top of that, I have multitude of blessing that I’m sure aren’t covered here, though I did try to make my categories broad enough to cover almost everything.
