November is the perfect time to pause, count our blessings, and give thanks for the simple things in life.
 
If we pause to think, we will have cause to thank.
 
Every day in November I want to make sure I stop and remember all of the beautiful blessings I have in my life and give thanks. I hope you join me in giving thanks for the simple things in life during this month of thanksgiving.

 

Day 5: I am thankful today for the over abundance of “stuff” we have in our house. Even though this over abundance of stuff is a bit overwhelming at the moment, it does mean that we are very blessed and not doing without. I am trying to organize, downsize, sort, and go through all of our stuff and it seems like an endless task. Pete reminded me at one point of this actually being a blessing and he is right. Goes along with the notion of having dirty dishes to clean or laundry to wash/fold for it means you have eaten a home-cooked meal and have clothes to wear. 🙂 Just gotta keep the right perspective when I feel overwhelmed by all of our stuff. I am sure many of you can relate to my over abundance of stuff blessing.

P.S. I got carried away cleaning/organizing yesterday, went out to eat for dinner, and came home and went to bed, hence no post yesterday!
