What I’m Thankful For (Slightly Late) + Simple Joys #1

*pant, gasp, wheeze* Wow, that was quite the long title!

And yes, I do realize that Thanksgiving is over and we’re entering the holiday season. Don’t worry, I’m not completely crazy – there is a method to my madness. πŸ˜‰

But anyways . . . Β being thankful for what we have is super important – even when it’s not Thanksgiving! We areΒ blessed to be surrounded by friends and family, to be able to go to school, to have access to food, water, and housing . . . I could go on. But if I did, we’d be here another couple years. (And it would get boring. By 2020, I’d be saying things like “I’m grateful for, um, plastic . . .”).

I think I sounded preachy there. I’m not trying to . . . 😐

And that brings me to my own list of what I’m thankful for. πŸ™‚
