Happy Thanksgiving!

While we have no Thanksgiving plans for today, I am still calling it a holiday and taking the day off to be with my family. I’m going to enjoy their company, and let each one of my kids know how thankful I am for them. At some point, I’ll get to see my hubby and tell him how much I love him, too.

I have so much to be thankful for. This year has brought an abundance of blessings…. a new baby on the way, the Hayneedle.com gift card, 3 kids excelling in school, a husband that loves me and works hard to take care of us…. I could go on and on. I have been blessed beyond measure.

Life isn’t always easy. We all face trials and tribulations. Loved ones get sick and pass away. There never seems to be enough money to cover all the bills. One thing after another happens, and it’s easy to get discouraged. I hope that today you are able to look past all the bad stuff and find that glimmer of sunshine somewhere.

I pray that each one of you has a wonderful Thanksgiving. Enjoy your families, your friends, and your turkeys. (If you eat turkey on Thanksgiving.) 🙂

Normal posts will resume tomorrow.

    Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂 I don't always like having to look on the bright side but I know it's an important thing for mommies to do for their families. 🙂 Thanks for the encouragement! I really AM thankful for so much. Every time I start getting really down in the dumps over something (or maybe just discontent) God shows me how much worse it could be. It's like a quick slap in the face sometimes, realizing that I've been whining but someone else is really suffering. I hate it when I realize I'm being selfish! lol

    I know that's not what you meant but I'm getting off on a tangent here… LOL

    Hope you're enjoying your Thanksgiving!
