This time of year is always sentimental. With Thanksgiving on the horizon, this month reminds us to reflect on the people and things we are most thankful for. However, we do take time everyday to thank God for all of the provisions and blessings that he has bestowed upon us, regardless of the time of year.
Being thankful is something that doesn’t just come easily. I have learned to be thankful for a difficult situation because it’s an opportunity to have faith and learn. I’ve learned to be thankful in the chaos of raising children because I get to see their milestones, their learning, their growing. I’ve learned to be thankful for every person I encounter because it gives me an opportunity to live as an example that would be pleasing to God. If there’s one piece of advice I could give, it would be to just be thankful in all things.
Here’s a few snapshots of some of the good things we are especially thankful for this season: friends and family to bake for, October picnics, quiet moments for praying or creating, bedtime stories, colorful foliage, and crisp, cool air.
We hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving.
