Thanksgiving Day weekend is here! A time to enjoy the company of loved ones, feast on an over-abundance of food and an opportunity to reflect on the showers of blessings we been given. There are so, so many reasons for which to be thankful. Looking back, there are many happy occasions as well as less joyous moments, but by taking a quick glance into the world, I realize that our problems are miniscule compared to the situations of many others on this planet. Sometimes I need to stop and count my blessings more, although I’m sure there are many that I’m not even aware of – how often don’t we notice even the little things?! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Do you have any plans for this weekend? We have lots of family time planned. I really want to try to take the kids out for a long walk. The colors of the leaves are so vibrant and full of color right now! It’s beautiful.
