On this exquisitely beautiful November day I find myself awestruck by how blessed I am.
This realization is made all the more profound by reflecting on a year that was spotted with difficulty and heartache at times. But no less blessed am I.
I’m thankful for the big things: my two kids (happy, healthy, and really good kids), my husband (a man who I’m so proud of and is such a great friend and mate), good health, creativity, immense freedom, a God who loves me. But I’m so thankful for the little things too: the black-eyed susan vine that mingles with the morning glory at my picket fence, the happy sound of my daughter singing in the shower, the faint bark of seals out my front door.
May this Thanksgiving Day find you with an abundance of both big and small blessings for you to take account, and in the midst of people you love! (I'm going to keep this post short so I can return to my family!)
