Happy Thanksgiving! While staying at my aunt's house I discovered my seven year old cousin, Mazie's journal. I came upon it while cleaning up and did not know what it was until I read the open page. At the top of the page was written, "How many time I said thank you today." Tally marks followed. It was so sweet that I had to show my aunt.
This was a great lesson to me to recognize my many blessings and the things that I am thankful for, and to remember to give thanks to my Heavenly Father for my blessings. I have a desire to write letters to the many people who have contributed to my life for the better. The problem is, I get a letter written and then add someone else and my list never gets any smaller.
I suppose that is a good thing, at least it means that I recognize others to be thankful for. I truly have many blessings in my life and the most important of those are people. I hope that I will remember my blessings more than my trials in the coming days. I love life, family and this beautiful holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!
