Thankful Thursday- Thanksgiving

Time for Thankful Thursday, another of my favorite memes. You can join in the fun at Grace Alone. Today’s theme is Thanksgiving.

~ I am thankful for traditions. We veered away from our “normal” Thanksgiving this year and went somewhere else. While I am glad that we did go (it was important to my grandmother) I missed the tradition of eating at my Mom’s (and more importantly- pumpkin pie).

~I am thankful that my kids are so polite and well mannered (at least in public LOL) that we could go to complete stranger’s for Thanksgiving and they could make friends, behave appropriately and make their mama proud!

~I am thankful that I was here to celebrate Thanksgiving this year. I think that after the near death experience in September I will look at every moment as a moment I could have missed.

~I am thankful for our church. It is where God intends for us to be and the Thanksgiving Eve service, where we had the Lord’s supper, was just a perfect way to kick off the holiday season.

~I am thankful I decided NOT to go Black Friday shopping. It would have been too much, I would have been pushing myself and it sounds like people were just downright nuts!

So, what are you thankful for today? Coming off of a holiday focused on gratitude we should all have a big list!!
