So, for what ARE you thankful???

While we have a couple days here between Thanksgiving and the onset of Advent... tell me, what ARE you thankful for this year? Leave me (and the community that reads here) a comment telling me what you're thankful for. (You can comment anonymously!)

I've been thinking a lot about those who sacrificed to begin this country- and those who Thanksgiving really commemorates. They had high ideals of a land where they could worship freely, and I think that is INSPIRING! To hold such convictions, that you're willing to risk perilous journey to an unknown land... this is living intentionally- and think with vision for the generations to come! I am thankful for their vision, their courage, their passion, convictions, and many sacrifices. I am thankful for those who came before them- defending their right to live here, work here, worship here, raise their families here, and eventually, govern themselves here. I am thankful for those who have and continue to serve in our military defending these rights. No matter what you think of America- how it's turning out- we must all admit, that the most people immigrate here. It's where people from around the world want to come. There are reasons for that!

So, there are COUNTLESS things to be thankful for each and every day- what things have been on YOUR heart this week? Please, share!

Hi, Katherine! What a wonderful site you've created. We enjoyed receiving your postcard and seeing pictures of your beautiful family! It's so hard to believe how things have changed since you were in Seymour. Your blogs are very inspiring - I'm sure you reach many people this way! Thanks for sharing~ Kim Schmidt
