Simple Thanks.

Thanksgiving week is here!  Have I ever mentioned how much I love this holiday?!  There’s some stiff competition, but if I had to choose I’m pretty sure Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.

It’s good to give thanks!

For the past few days, I’ve been working on cultivating a thankful heart and this morning, I surprised myself–rather than thinking through all the “big stuff”, my heart was drawn to the little things…

  • Piping hot coffee at the start of a cold morning.
  • A fire in the fireplace to offset a broken heater.
  • A generous sister who let me pillage her winter clothes while mine are still in storage.
  • Leftovers for dinner.
  • Online shopping to skip out on the holiday traffic.
Of course there are so many big, huge things I’m thankful for, but sometimes it’s fun to think through some of the smaller things.  So, what are some of the little things you’re thankful for today?
