A Time of Thanks

Sometimes my heart is overflowing with thanksgiving. It's often in the little moments, a soft unexpected touch, a word of appreciation from no where, a look between two people that says more than words ever could. Tender sweetness that can bring me to tears.
Today I'm living in abundance of love for my family, near and far, for my sweet husband and his unconditional love, for my daughter and her partner who life has disappointed lately, for my son and daughter-in-law who's home was destroyed by fire just a month ago but who survived and will go on, for my sweet youngest son who makes me laugh and shares his talents in many ways, for my six sweet grandchildren, for my sisters, some of whom are living with health challenges, for my mom who's going strong at 83, for nieces and nephews, especially Ryan who is marrying this weekend and surrounded by family old and new in Savannah, for large family gatherings and small, for my work-the absolute joy of doing something I love, for my former church family and my new one, who has welcomed me warmly, for my faithful friends.
Sometimes my heart is overflowing with thanksgiving.

I love that this day makes us take the time to think about what we are thankful for in our life. What a great premise for a holiday. The food doesn't hurt either.

Have a wonderful day. Happy Thanksgiving.
