For the month of November , I have been making a list daily, of the things I am grateful for. It has not only been encouraging, but also enlightening. It has made me more grateful overall, as I have been more thoughtful and contemplative about my life, and all that I have that is good. It has also been great to hear from others, and what it is they are grateful for.

so here we go........

Today I am grateful for:

- Christian music
- My cheap little faithful sewing machine
- E-mail, so much better then the old fashioned phone!
- Rosy cheeked little kids, who smell like outside
- My freshly organized pantry, ready for all the holiday ingredients to arrive.

What is it that you are grateful for today? Please share!

I am thankful for the simple things that leave lasting memories.
Last night, Andy built a small bonfire outside for the kids. My parents came over, and we all roasted hot dogs. The kids played hide and seek and freeze tag in the freezing cold and dark. The grown-ups stayed huddled around the fire and held the little ones.
love the fact that it takes so little to make our kids memories that will last a lifetime. And I am thankful for a man who makes it happen on a regular basis.
