thankful {2012}

November 22nd | thoughts

It’s impossible not to reflect on our blessings this time of year, don’t you think?

I find myself so incredibly grateful. Our lives and our little family are so imperfect–but that doesn’t mean there isn’t beauty to be found. I’m so thankful for David’s teachers, doctors and the support system around us. I’m thankful for our business, which gives me tons of flexibility. I’m thankful for my husband who works so hard and loves our family well. I’m thankful for our church family who are honest and broken and real. I’m thankful for our extended families who are fun and accepting and committed to us. I’m thankful for hot coffee in the morning and snuggles on the couch in the evening.

My heart is full. What are you thankful for?

    Hi Lisa, today I’m thankful for everything I have in my life today.. every tiny little thing.. the birds that are singing, the sunshine, my sprinkler (it’s early summer here and things are getting dry).. just everything really.. I have no need to look ahead.. nothing is more important than THIS day, right here, right now.
    We don’t celebrate thanksgiving here in NZ but I’d love to experience a traditional USA thanksgiving. It sounds wonderful! xxx
