As I type this, I am stuffed to the brim with all of the yummy Thanksgiving foods my family has prepared for the holiday season. My family, like many others, didn't just celebrate on Thursday. We've had three days of food, family, and fun. As the festivities come to an end, I can't help but reflect on all of the many reasons I'm thankful this holiday season. I'm thankful for God and the gift of his Son. I'm thankful for my wonderful family who has supported me throughout my life no matter what. I'm thankful for my sweet daughter and the joy she brings each and every day. I'm thankful for friends who will laugh with me during good times, and cry with me during bad. I'm thankful for the opportunity, inspiration, and ability to write and put ideas onto paper. I'm thankful for people who believe in my writing enough to take a chance on it, and I'm thankful for the patience those people have shown with a "newbie." Last, but certainly not least, I'm thankful for you guys. It's such a blessing to know you're just as invested in this journey as I am. I hope you've all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. May God continue to bless you in all that you do!
