On this Thankful Thursday, I am grateful for my niece, Denise Gwinn – “DeNiece.” Denise was married to my late nephew, Danny. Denise is the wonderful woman that helped him turn his life around. She watched over him during his long illness. Most of all she loved him and is the mother of their son, Wesley.  She is a warm-hearted, no-nonsense, and hard-working  person that can always be counted on. She is a committed Christian. Her pastor and church were fantastic during Danny’s illness and his death. I was amazed by their response. Wesley is fortunate to have a mother who is as committed to him as she is although he can’t get away with much.. His welfare is always uppermost in her mind.  Denise is a fun person to be around. She has a great sense of humor. On this Thankful Thursday, I am grateful for the presence of Denise Gwinn in my life.

            Thankful Thursday is a day set aside to honor someone special to our lives and to let her or him know of our gratitude. Develop an attitude of gratitude. Say Something Nice; Be a Lifter. You will be glad that you did.
