Be Thankful.

Today is Thanksgiving! The countdown is over, but by no means is it time to stop being thankful. We are truly a blessed people. The older I get the more thankful I become I think. There have been several people on Facebook that have been posting what they are thankful for every day of November leading up to Thanksgiving. Well, I've compiled my list and here they are! Each day of November, this is what was on my FB post! Everyone has something to be thankful for. I just happen to have a lot! =) Happy Thanksgiving my friends..

November 23: I'm thankful for each and every one of the people in my life. Past, present and future. Thankful for the adventures shared, the laughs, time together and memories. That is what lasts a life time. 1 day 'til Thanksgiving!

November 22: I'm thankful for reliable transportation to get my family and I to and from our destinations, to be able to travel and visit those we don't see often, to go on mini getaways, etc.. 2 days 'til Thanksgiving!

November 21: A man and woman walk in our office to order a piece of glass. After he completes his order, he asks one of our sales guys if he's the owner. He says no, he's not in right now.. The guy proceeds to tell him that he just wanted to tell him thank you. Our sales guy look at him inquisitively. He continues to say that he used to be homeless and live in the woods not far from our building and that the owner used to buy them bags of groceries to feed them. He was no longer homeless and wanted to thank him for helping him and others through their hard times. Wow. That owner is my dad. I'm so thankful for the giving hearts my family has.... =) 3 days 'til Thanksgiving!

November 20: I'm thankful for volunteers at church that take the time to teach my precious baby girl about Jesus. I always love to hear what she learned about every Sunday! Today, she learned about being thankful. That makes my heart smile! 4 days 'til Thanksgiving!

November 19: I'm thankful for weekends! Days I can be home with Tyler and Keller are priceless! I'm thankful I don't have to work 7 days a week. 5 days 'til Thanksgiving!

November 18: I'm thankful for my education. Not many have the opportunity to go to high school, much less college. I'm thankful that my parents were not only able to provide a way, but really wanted me to go. I'm thankful for the friends I made and the education I received! Go Jags! =) 6 days 'til Thanksgiving!

November 17: I'm thankful for technology. Television, computers, cameras, phones etc. it's good to stay in touch with people you wouldn't be able to visit with otherwise. 7 days 'til Thanksgiving!

November 16: I'm thankful that my mom is able to keep Keller during the week while Tyler and I are at work. Keller gets to experience all kinds of fun stuff and even come see me at work every once in a while! Truly a blessing to have peace of mind all day every day that all is well. There's not much better than peace of mind! 8 days 'til Thanksgiving!

November 15: I'm thankful for my sweet Hardy. He has been the best dog for our family. Great temperament and grey with Keller! I'm thankful for all of our past fur babies too.. :-) 9 days 'til Thanksgiving!

November 14: I'm thankful to live in the south. Pure and simple. 10 days 'til Thanksgiving!

November 13: I'm thankful that we can freely worship, for my church, pastor, and church family. I'm thankful that we can drive to church and don't have to walk through underground tunnels to get there. Thankful that I can walk into a bookstore and purchase a bible or a worship cd. We are a blessed people.

November 4: I'm thankful for parents that raised me right, that took care of me and loved me unconditionally. They have taught me so much and continue to do so.
