I'm most Thankful!!!

Thanksgiving - I am always humbled by this day every
year because I have so very much to be thankful for! I
have been blessed beyond my dreams!
We grew to 5 this year with Brook becoming a beautiful
addition to the family! Charlie and Brook came in on
Monday so we will all be together! Courtney will bring
a new friend to Thanksgiving dinner! I really think we
should be in a "Thanksgiving mood" every day and be
aware of all we have to be thankful for!
We will converge on Steve and Adrienne's house for
the big feast this afternoon and watch football - what
else could you want???
Our 2 Labradors have grown in to such beautiful
parts of our life and keep us busy everyday - big
bundles of love!
Then - on Saturday.... Courtney and I will travel to
Gainesville to watch our Gators deal with those ugly
ole Seminoles!!! GO GATORS!!!!!


Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home,
a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.

May you have a happy day, today, no matter the season, or the color of the decorations in the store windows. May you have peace inside your mind and heart, despite the battles being fought here and abroad. May you find, deep down, the ability to be thankful, and have eyes to see that God has blessed you. May your ability to believe overcome our natural tendency to doubt. May goodness and kindness flow from you, and return in greater measure. Know that you are loved, and that this day is made special by you knowing that it is a gift, and using each moment, waking or sleeping, to add to your health and wholeness. I wish you blessings, and pray for you tonight.
