Happy Friday Y'all! I hope your Halloween was super fun and safe. Widget enjoyed her time trick-or-treating, and even though her bag of loot was not the most impressive I've seen-it was plenty of candy to keep her content.
Now that we have started the month of November, most of us have started thinking about what we are thankful for...and some have even started making lists (in journals, post-it on the fridge, or on Facebook, etc.). I've been a bit lazy, and not taken the time to write much down, but I have been making a mental list of all the wonderful people, experiences, and things that have influenced and blessed my life.
I still struggle waiting for the next bundle of pure energy to grace our lives, and since surgery, I worry and stress even more than usual. I still would love to be entrusted with more little souls from my Heavenly Father, but I realize that things will happen on His time, not my own....but saying something will happen eventually does not make it an easier wait. I know I am loved, and I have a testimony of God and His plan for me, but I am still imperfect and forget to not lean on my own understanding and knowledge. I am indeed grateful for the Lord's insight of my needs and wants, and His graciousness to bless me daily with the things I truly need (especially emotionally).
So this November, I hope to take a few minutes each day to thank my Heavenly Father for all the many many blessings I have been given, and to also thank those around me for their love, service and smiles.
What about you-how are you celebrating Thanksgiving, besides a feast? Does your family have any traditions that last the entire month? Or specific activities to instill an attitude of gratitude in your home?
Have a good weekend!
