Full of Thankfulness

Can't believe that tomorrow is Thanksgiving - our day is going to be relatively quiet, which I'm actually really looking forward to. We'll be getting together with some family on Saturday, and I know we'll have a ball.

In the meantime, though, I am trying to focus on having an attitude of gratitude... cuz seriously, we have soooooo much to be thankful for. A brief list:
- Our health. Something we take for granted, but such a huge thing. And we have access to doctors, pharmacies, etc. when needed.
- Food. In fact, we have this in abundance. How crazy is it that I'm actually paying an organization to help me lose weight?! Definitely not an issue in many parts of the world.
- A warm home. Bedrooms for everyone. Two bathrooms. Clean, running water anytime I want it. Appliances to help me carry out my duties. Wow.
- Our family. I have a wonderful husband who loves us all so much, and two children who constantly amaze and humble me.
- But most of all, our Savior. Where to even start? What an amazing thing to serve a loving, patient, merciful God.
