Last night however, I stayed up far too late, sewing an Advent Calendar....that is still waiting to be finished. As the beginning of our day started much too quickly for my taste, I found myself complaining more than I should. I'm not sure what turned things around but, as the day progressed my foggy brain and negative attitude drifted away.
Cinnamon pine cones and candles...little tastes of Christmas that are beginning to fill our home.
As I baked my pie this afternoon and stirred the fudge, I tried to mentally compile a list of the things I'm most grateful for. At the top of my list, I'm thankful for God's grace. So many times I could have gone the wrong direction and my life would be so different. Repeatedly, He has pulled me back on track and saved me! How grateful I am for that! I'm thankful that I'm able to blog openly about my faith. I'm thankful for our wonderful church, that we prayed for, for a long time.
A little piece of Christmas that we brought home with us from Leavenworth.
I'm so thankful for my Judah and my Paisley. Without fail, every single day they make me laugh and smile. I love them so much it makes me heart hurt!
I'm thankful for my sister, my Mom, my Dad and everyone else in our family. I'm thankful for my nephews and for the amazing friendships that they have with my kids.
My list could go on and on and for that, I am grateful. So, what I want to know is....What are YOU thankful for? Please, share!
Happy Thanksgiving, sweet readers. Enjoy your day tomorrow. Slow down, be thankful and share it.
