I’m Thankful For…

Nov 20th

There’s always seems to be an endless list of things I am thankful for. Of course this time of year we’re reminded to stop and think about what means so much to us. One of my goals for 2013 is to keep a daily list of one thing that makes my day brighter and reminds me how truly blessed I am. It’s easy to think of the negative or “wants”, but difficult to give thanks every day. Want to join me? Until then, here’s a lookback on the year and what I give thanks for.
