.give thanks.



I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving.
I hope you eat potatoes & turkey until your belly is full.
I hope you get lots of delicious treats (pie, if that's your thing...)
I hope you have lots of loved ones to be around.
But mostly, I hope you stop & take it all in.

I hope you realize how much you have to be thankful for.
The family, the friends, the roof over your head, the clothes keeping you warm.
A God who loves you, a free country to live in...it goes on and on. 
I hope you remember that, and that your thankfulness doesn't stop when the food has been put away,
 & your family has headed home.
I hope tomorrow & the day after & the day after you can make a thankful list as long as your arm.
I hope even when your day is going badly, you will still stop & realize all you have to be thankful for.

Now go eat, drink, and be merry!
