Thanksgiving Thursday

“A single grateful thought towards heaven is the most complete prayer.”

Well, it is Thanksgiving Thursday again and I can’t believe how fast this week has passed. This is where I need to “stop” and really think about the things I am thankful for. In the hustle & bustle of life we are always getting caught up in the “daily necessities” and it truly can be very difficult to put on the breaks and just “take a moment.” A moment for ourselves, a moment for our children, and a moment to breathe in and simply say “thank you".

If I think about my many blessings, Little Chick will always be first. I waited a long time for her (as I talked about in my About Me page) and since God blessed me with my baby in 2006, I never let a day go by without thinking about what an absolute miracle it is!

I am so grateful for the shelter I have. Sometimes I think we can take things like this for granted. It started raining last night and it got really cold in my house. I grabbed an extra blanket and turned the heat back on. Yes, the heat! I thought about the people out there who don’t have heat, or a blanket (let alone an extra one), or even shelter!

I think we all feel thankful throughout our days, but it is not until we truly “take a moment” and think about how much we really have, that it starts to resonate within us.

Here is Little Chick and her new tire swing! It finally came! Thank you jungle gym company! You made one little girl very happy!!
