My oldest daughter loves Thanksgiving. She thinks it's one of the best holidays of the year. We don't really do anything special. We eat, we play some games, we watch some football, and we look at the ads to plot our Black Friday shopping trip. But my daughter loves it. She loves the food, the hanging out together, and the fact that she doesn't have to go to school. I, too, think Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays, and it too often gets lost in the rush from Halloween to Christmas. What other holiday exists where the sole purpose is to get together with family and eat? There are no gifts to buy, no decorations to put up. There's just a time to enjoy each other and reflect on what we have to be thankful for.
All month, I've been sharing with you all the things for which I'm thankful. Today, as I reflect on those things, I want to finish with telling you I'm thankful for you. When I started this blog, I figured my parents and maybe some of my friends would read it. Here I sit a year and a half later, and more than 400 of you get my thoughts in your email inbox every morning. Some of you hang out with me on the Everyday Truth Facebook page.
I feel blessed that God meets me in my chair at 6 every morning to provide me with something to share with you. Your comments and encouragement make a difference in my day. So, today I'm grateful that God has allowed each of you, whether you live next door or in Nigeria, to touch my life. As Paul said in Philippians 1:3 "I thank my God every time I remember you." Thank you all for being a part of my life.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy your day of Thanksgiving!
