More thankful


On days such as today, many people are thankful, or bring what they are thankful for to the forefront of their minds.  In my Girls’ group at church, we are supposed to journal every day in November with different prompts on the things for which we are thankful.   

Why not make a habit of keeping thankfulness to every day, and developing an ‘attitude of gratitude’?  (I know most of us feel like we can do this around this time of year)

“Gratitude shows us what’s there instead of what isn’t”

I am thankful for many things everyday; that’s how I think everyone should look at life.  This is probably the reason that I am always the one asked to say the blessing over our thanksgiving meal.  



  • MY LIFE! Through the horrible near death car accident I was in resulting in a traumatic brain injury- God allowed me to pull through

    • Prayer Shawl Ministry (the knitting/crocheting group that I organize)
    • MOMS [Mothers and Others in Mission and Study] group at church
