This week every year I really look and realize everything I have to be thankful for.
Yes, I am thankful all year long and try not to take things for granted. But with Thanksgiving this week I am thinking more and more about the things I am thankful for.
A few years back, I took a lot of things for granted and really just lived day to day. It took just a quick turn in my life to really sit down and realize all that I have been blessed with. Wow, God really has blessed my family, friends and me more than I could ever have imagined. I love more than anything that I am able to serve my family each and every day. Even just in the small things like listening to them tell a story about something that happened to them during the day. My husband and two daughters put a smile on my face and fill my heart.
I challenge you this week and every week throughout the year to look through the small window of life and see what God is doing for you and through you each and every day. I can promise you even in the hardest days, God has a plan for you and your life.
Be Blessed this Thanksgiving!
