Thanksgiving Thursday - Beautiful Gifts

"Give thanks for the beautiful simple gifts that surround us each and every day." ~Mama Hen
We are surrounded by blessings every day. It can be so easy to become caught up in the stresses and negative that swirls around us as we go about our days. I, at times, can get pulled into the vortex of negativity and find myself losing valuable moments with what is most important in life - family and friends. I am incredibly grateful for my greatest gift - my daughter, Little Chick. She is filled with love and compassion for animals and people around her. The past couple of months she collected donations for hurricane victims in Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico. She, along with her Girl Scout troop, created 67 hurricane relief kits and she also completed 55 more kits with our church. She also brought boxes of collected donations to our local shelter and baked cookies to share. On Sunday I surprised her with visiting a friend of ours on a farm filled with many beautiful animals. Little Chick was so excited. She rode an adorable Appaloosa. There are so many things to be thankful for.   
Thanksgiving Thursday: 1.) Little Chick and my family. 2.) The ability to be able to give to others. 3.) The joy that animals bring to my daughter. 4.) My mom and the way she makes Little Chick laugh. 5.) Our church and the beautiful giving community it is.

  1. Wow, Little Chick has such a big heart--just like her mom. Please let her know that Little Lewie and I are so proud of her and her compassionate nature. I'm sure many families and individuals are very thankful right now because of her kindness. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, my friend!
