Well, I made it! A thankful-type post every day for the month of November. Phew! I might just say that today I’m thankful that tomorrow is December! But as I looked back over the month, I realized that I never actually gave thanks for the Really Big things in my life.
Like this guy –
who drives me around the country, still laughs at most of my jokes after all these years, and loves me regardless.
I’m so thankful for him!
Or my Family –
Kids and grands, sisters and in-laws, nieces and nephews and everyone in between. Whether they are in this picture or not – they fill my heart with thankfulness.
And let me not forget the great thankfulness I have for our good health, safe travels, resources, coffee, and dark chocolate.
The technology to actually SEE our grandkids when we talk to them, and send them silly Bitmojis (once I figured them out!) when we text is something I never even knew I could be thankful for.
But please know that I am not just thankful for these things. I am actually Giving Thanks for these (and so many other) things. And I am giving that thanks to my LORD and Savior, King of Kings, LORD of Lords, and Friend to Sinners like me. Without Him these would be empty Thanks indeed.
Thank you for coming along on this Thankful Journey! From the little things like leftovers to the big things like family – may you also be richly blessed with a spirit of Thankfulness.
