November has begun and so has the Facebook feeds about what everyone is thankful for. Perhaps you have seen them or maybe even started one of your own. Last year, I listed one thing I was thankful each day. It really did make me sit down and think. I think G. K. Chesterton was right when he said that we need to get in the habit of “taking things with gratitude and not taking things for granted.”
This year, I am trying something a little different. I think pictures speak more than words, so this November I will be snapping pictures of things, people, and situations for which I am grateful. God has blessed my family with many wonderful things, most I take for granted. May I, during these 30 days, slow down enough to remember, smile, and give thanks to the One who has given me countless blessings.
