Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! No matter how you are spending your day today, I hope you are being reminded of the goodness of God in your life and that you are thankful for every blessing in your life from the smallest to the largest. Rachel at Finding Joy is hosting the ABC's of Thanks and I decided to participate in her fun way to be reminded of all the things (both big & small) we have to be thankful for. So here goes:
A is for adoption ~ such a gift in my life & in the lives of children worldwide
B is for beach ~ our annual trip to the beach is a highlight of our year
C is for Children ~ I love them all 4 so much
D is for David ~ the love of my life & the best husband & father
E is for Elephant ~ Roll Tide (hey, you knew it would be here somewhere!!)
F is for Family ~ both immediate & extended families
G is for Glasses ~ I can see individual tree leaves when I wear mine!
H is for House ~ so many people throughout the world can't say that
I is for Ice cream ~ who isn't thankful for this treat?!
J is for Joy ~ you can find joy in anything if you just look hard enough
K is for Kitchen ~ the favorite room in my house and where memories are made
L is for Life ~ I wasn't aborted, my birth parents chose to give me up for adoption instead
