Psalms 107:1-  Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!

WOW! I can't believe that it is already November. The big Holiday season is coming and i have no idea how it got here so quickly. I am going to focus on Thanksgiving for now because that is coming up first. I am soooooo very thankful for many things and i have to admit that i am more thankful on my 14th Thanksgiving than on any other thanksgiving before. I remember when i was around  8 or 9 and we were going around the table saying what we were thankful for. I was speechless. I couldn't think of one thing to say.  That is pretty sad. But now... I can't even list everything i am thankful for. I have changed so much i am thankful for EVERYTHING!

      My goal is to list at least 50 things i am thankful for but... that will be on Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for? Are you just thankful for your family and friends? Or are you thankful for a pair of shoes, water, clothes, food, a toothbrush, or a hairbrush?  I have to say i am VERY thankful for my family. They are the best people ever and support me in everything i do and i am very thankful for that. But, do you ever think about being thankful that you can walk over to your sink and get water out of it instead of having to walk for hours only to get muddy, infected water? Are you thankful that you have a clean pair of clothes to put on everyday? What about a hairbrush to brush your hair?

I'm just going to leave it at this for now and i really want you to think about this. Most of the world does not have a sink to get water out of or a hairbrush to brush their hair with. Just think for a second about, what you are thankful for?

  1. I'm thankful for a new generation of people like YOU that are aware of those living across the world without access to clean water, food, etc!! You guys inspire me. :)

    Love you
