This is the time of year where I can’t help but feel thankful. Thankful for health, happiness, the beauty that surrounds us, good friends, and a loving family.
I'll admit that there are days that challenge me. Challenge me to be as good as I can be. Sometimes it is hard to be thankful when I feel that everything has gone wrong and that I've not lived up to my full potential.
But whenever I am feeling that way, I am reminded that there is always, always, always something to grateful for.
The small act of stopping to reflect upon my blessings makes me realize that each day is a gift. And we are blessed beyond measure.
Even the smallest members of our family participated in adding feathers to our thankful turkey.
(This turkey was made by hot glueing two decorative grapevine balls together. I cut out feathers, glued them to toothpicks, and we pushed them into the gaps after writing what we were thankful for. That's it.)
