Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Truly I think this is one of my favorite holidays. Not because of the food, not because of the long weekend, but because of the fall setting and family. The crisp fall air seems more honest somehow and it encourages you to be closer to the ones you love, if for no other reason the warmth.
My life, as you might see through my blog, is great. God has given me so many blessings to be thankful for. By far the biggest is my family whom give me love, inspiration, comfort, and security. Another blessing that I think gets overlooked a great deal is this great place we live. A stable environment that is expansive, relatively healthy, and provides us with all we need.
I'm guilty of sometimes wishing I had more but maybe one other thing that I should be thankful for is God's patience with me as I relearn to be grateful and content with what I have and His guidance as I remember that everything I have is through him. My community, my church, my job, my car...it all comes from him.
