Like Daughter, Like Mother: Thankfulness

My daughter came home from school this week with a Thankful Wreath, and each leaf had a sentence of something she was thankful for. It was so carefully cut, glued and created and something I will treasure for many years to come. When I found it, I stood in awe, not only as a proud mom but so thankful for her heart and love.

Here were a few of her thankful thoughts:

I am thankful for my family.

I am thankful for my teacher.

I am thankful for my friends.

I am thankful for my dogs.

I am thankful for God.

I am thankful for everything.

I couldn’t have said it better myself.  1 Thessalonians 5:18 tells us to “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ.”  Today, I am thankful for everything and I really want to soak in the blessings the Lord has sweetly given during my lifetime. I truly wish I could say that I have a spirit of thanksgiving in all circumstances, even if I’m not necessarily thankful FOR the circumstance, but I ashamedly fall short often. Today serves as such a reminder that we have been given far more than we ever have or could ever deserve and for that I’m grateful. Today I’m thankful that I get to hang out with my favorite people, eating the most delicious of food and watching hours of football. Sounds pretty perfect to me. : )

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, and may you be reminded of your blessings today and for the days to follow!!
