Today is Thanksgiving in the US. A day for Americans to reflect on what brought us here in the first place, to be grateful for the things God has provided for us, and give back. There are so many, many things to be grateful for:
? My Family: I’m thankful for my husband and all he does for our family. We are a team and I couldn’t ask for a better match for me. My son is healthy and happy go-lucky. He’s a little ball of energy, inquisitive, and like his mama loves to read. He brings me joy even on the bad days.
? My Community: After the events of this week, I’m so thankful for the community I grew up in and am fortunate enough to raise my son in. We are a community in the truest sense of the word. When one hurts, we all hurt and you never have to look far for a helping hand. Who said you need the big city?! I’ll take my rural home any day.
? My Country: While during election season, this country has had its ups and downs, I wouldn’t trade it for the world! I’m so thankful for the freedoms I have, for the opportunities to learn and grow, the diversity that makes America what it is. We are the melting pot, many races/nationalites/religion come together in one nation. We may fight amongst ourselves, have differing opinions, but at the end of the day we are all Americans.
? And of course….BOOKS ? What kind of book blogger would I be without mentioning the books I devour on a daily basis?! I’m thankful for the opportunity I’ve had as a blogger, meeting authors, reading new books and sharing them with all of you.
