Today I am so thankful for so much! Thankful for my amazingly wonderful family and friends. A roof over our heads. Food on the table. A steady income and amazing jobs. Good health and insurance. A comfy life we probably take for granted everyday and so much more! Most of all, we are blessed with these two amazing children. I look at their sweet faces and can’t imagine our lives without them. Today I am reflecting on all that God has given me – even when I don’t deserve such things. To trust in us to love on these little babies when they needed refuge, love and care. Not to mention the love that overflows from others in our lives, like family and friends. It’s about taking care of the needy. Realizing how blessed we are and going out into the world so we too can bless others in need. Maybe there is something you can do today, week, month or year to extend a helping hand in this hurting world. It doesn’t have to be huge, maybe something small like practicing patience with someone difficult in your life. Or simply opening the door for someone. It will be enough to make a change in someones heart, believe me.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, whether with family or friends! We are heading to northern California to spend a few days with my husbands folks. We are so happy we can spend it with one of our families this year – after all, it’s the kids first Thanksgiving and we want it to be a good one!
What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Do you have any yearly traditions?
