           In the month of November I vowed, to each day write something i was Thankful for, big or small. I'm sure I could take a year or two and fill it each day with thankful thoughts, so much we have all been given! From things I take for granted like being able to see my kids run and play, to being able to drive to a friends house in my own car, to Jesus dieing on the cross so that we may have life! And of coarse there is daily surprises that can come that just make your day and make you feel extra Thankful ;)
