Thanksgiving. It is the time of year when families get together, we watch parades, root on our favorite football teams and eat a ton of food. This time of year I like to focus on what we are thankful for. I am thankful for my family; I have an amazing husband and two step-sons that I love as my own, I have the most amazing parents and inlaws who support us through anything, I have my sister who I love no matter what and the cutest nephew ever. I am also thankful for our friends; we have the best friends in the world who we laugh with, cry with and can turn to when we really need them. I am thankful for our health; we have been blessed with our health when we know so many people who are hurting and sick. I am thankful most of all for Jesus Christ our savior who died on the cross for our sins; he is there for us when we need it and don't deserve it and never lets us down. I need to be better at recognizing what I am thankful for all year round and not just this time of year. That will be one of my goals next year, I will keep you posted on my progress. As you go through this Thanksgiving, take a minute and think of what you are thankful for. There are so many things to be thankful for all around us, sometimes we just need to slow down and take it all in.
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
