So, it is November...the leaves are most assuredly turning colors, the air is getting just a bit nippier and the absence of mosquitoes here in my back yard is a SURE sign that autumn is here. THIS is my most favorite time of the year. The time when "family" is not just a word that we use as an excuse for why we associate with questionable people...but an actual feeling that moves over us in waves of appreciation for those whom we love. We FELL it. We KNOW it. We BELONG to someone.
It is a time when "thankfulness" is not just some random word used in a lesson plan at school...but an actual emotion that we experience when we reflect on our daily gifts from God.

And a time that "Blessings" are not just what we offer when someone next to us sneezes...they are rather the untouchable things that we count and enumerate when we are siting at the Thanksgiving table...surrounded with our family...silently thanking God for everything he has blessed us with.

I LOVE AUTUMN...and everything that comes with it. The words, the lessons, the feelings, the sights...sounds...smells...and of course...I can not forget the tastes. YUM. Pumpkin Pie....a little slice of heaven!

So...for November...I am going to post my daily "Thankfulness"...well...I will aim for may just well be bi weekly for all I know! lol.

and...TODAY...I am thankful for this right here: is last year's photograph...but my family just the same. I will start my Thankfulness chronicles with the thing I am MOST thankful Family.

What are you thankful for? Leave me a comment and tell me. I would love to know!

I love the idea! Beautiful photo!

I must say I am thankful that my husband and boys love me...all of me. I am loving and compassionate, generous and selfless but can be a handful, disappointing, and just plain dreadful at times but they love me none the less.No words can truly express what it feels like that no matter what happened that day/week/month I can undoubtedly rely on the fact that I will get a kiss, hug and I love you every night.
