Today, is Thanksgiving. At least in Canada.
And there is so much to be thankful for. So, so much. Our family is blessed beyond measure and the things we have to give thanks for could fill pages and pages. . . .but I will spare you ;)
At the beginning of October, I started counting everyday thanks again. I had been doing it for a while and then stopped around May. But I felt that it was something I needed to start again. To continue doing. So what follows, is what I have to be thankful for -so far- in October.
a second vehicle
pre-school 2 half days a week for Owen
not having to turn on the heat yet
sermons that speak to the heart
pumpkin spice lattes
for air that smells like fall
enough airmiles for a movie night out coupon (yay date night!)
Bible study with Troy
Enough to eat every day
friends who pray for you
family pictures in the fall
a tire that holds air till I make it home
baby giggles and cuddles
summer temperatures in the middle of October
a sale on the B.I.G bags of flour
clothes drying on the line
walks with *family* in the woods
leaves crunching underfoot
homemade pumpkin pies
2 Thanksgiving dinners
Conversations from the heart
Again, so much to be thankful for, even on the days where we wonder and question and worry. There is always something to be thankful for.
The best way to sum it all up for me?
I am thankful that God is the same. Yesterday, today and forever.
