Somewhere at the beginning of November I missed the bandwagon on thirty days of thankfulness. There might be a video and some details that go along with the concept, but I'm not sure. The idea has stuck with me though and I see nothing wrong with being thankful for the last half of November right through Thanksgiving and into Advent. It's perfect, really. Thirty days could never be enough to truly give thanks for all that I have and love. There is not one bedtime story, trip to the grocery store or call to my parents that I am not grateful for. Not one. I am far too aware of how quickly it can disappear and I constantly am aware of how good it is. Thankfulness is in my heart.
Today I am thankful for my amazing 8 year old son. He was honored at school this week for being selected to the John Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth. He IS academically talented, as well as warm, generous and hilarious. He is a precious blessing to our family that I am thankful for every single day.
