This was a fun list to read. I bet it was fun to think of things to be thankful for by letter. I cracked up at the third item in the letter "U" list, but I am thankful for those as well. :-)

Thanks everybody. I did have fun thinking of all the things that I am thank-ful for that start with all the letters. Some things we start to take for granted but God has given them to us as well. He provides for us so well!
