Thinking Thankful

This is a special day.

And not just because we'll all be enjoying a cornucopia of amazing food and restful naps after eating that food.

And not just because we'll be surrounded by a few or a roomful of loved ones and family.

And not just because it gives us an excuse to say thanks and count our blessings.

For me, it's all of those things combined.

The combo of the friendships, family, food and gratefulness (and a lovely few days off of work) fill my little heart with gladness.

People, cooking, love and food are some of my favorite things in the entire world. And quality time combining all of those is like hitting the jackpot for me.

No matter where you are or what you're doing this Thanksgiving, I hope that the time makes you think and enjoy what's around you, what you can share more of and what living each day thankful looks like to you.

I'll leave you with those thoughts and this prayer:

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change; 
courage to change the things I can; 
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time; 
enjoying one moment at a time; 
accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; 
taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it; 
trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will; 
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.
