'Tis the Season...To Be Thankful

When my dear friend D'Ann (at Five Bazillion and One) began blogging on a daily basis about thankfulness I thought to myself, "I'll do that too!"

I didn't.

What with an unbelievably quick house sale (five days) and a closing of twenty-five days, I haven't been blogging at all.

I have instead been up to my eyeballs in boxes, bags and furniture.

I even did a Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 1 so that we could have a real dinner with my entire family without the added stress of getting everything unpacked and settled.

Even so, I am thankful.

I'm thankful for the closing of one season and the beginning of another.

I'm thankful for friends who love me even when I'm too sensitive and stressed out.

I'm thankful for family that doesn't blast me for starting a new adventure out here in the country.

I'm thankful for children who are so willing to embrace new challenges and hard work.

I'm even thankful for the boxes, bags and furniture that have to be put away somewhere (although I wish there weren't quite so many).

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

I Thessalonians 5:18
