Thankful for the blessing. A family, a home, never having experienced hunger and so many dear friends that there won't be one empty seat at our thanksgiving table.
Thankful for the trials. The temporary discomfort of trials pales in comparison to the amazing works God accomplished through them.
Thankful for the gift I don't always see as good. God's plan is great than ours. His ways are higher than ours. He has a greater sense of value. What my finite mind cannot comprehend as right, just and great God see as good and perfect.
Thankful for the little thing.
Like my family's holiday traditions, such as making the same recipes every year for the same Bon Appetite we have been planning our Thanksgivings from since 1997.

The crisp snap in the air this time of year.
Thankful cards for dear family and friends.
“We pray for the big things and forget to give thanks for the ordinary, small (and yet really not small) gifts.” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer
And this precious little girl in her turkey shirt she wears almost every day.
“Perhaps it takes a purer faith to praise God for unrealized blessings than for those we once enjoyed or those we enjoy now.” ― A.W. TozerWhat are you thankful for?
