November is the time to count our many blessings – name them one by one.
I want to look at each day and name at least one blessing from that day. Something that happened or affected me on that day and not just in general. It can be so easy to igore those little blessings in our day, but sometimes it is the little blessings that can make the biggest impact.
November 14 – Thankful for Books
As an avid reader, I am so thankful for books. They give me an escape from the stress of daily life. They educate me. They expose me to a world outside of my own. They make me laugh. They make me cry. I LOVE BOOKS.
November 15 – Thankful for Friends
Doesn’t everyone have groups of friends that fill different needs? I do! I have my book club friends that I can’t wait to get together with every month. Then I have my church friends who I rely on for so many things. I have my BFF who unfortunately lives in another state, but our texts, cards and phone calls keep us close. I have my high school friends and college friends who I don’t get to see hardly ever, but thanks to Facebook, I can keep up with their lives. I have my dear friend, Mary, who keeps me sane and makes me laugh. I have my Bible Study friends whom I pray for daily. I have those in my family who I also consider some of my best friends and couldn’t get through a day without. I have friends from home and friends in our community that are such a joy to hang out with. And finally, I have all my blogger/online friends who impact my life daily, even if they don’t know it. Each one of these friends brings something special and important to my life and without them, I wouldn’t be the person that I am. Thanks for being my friend!
