Thankful Thursday

Two weeks until Thanksgiving?!

Time flies...whether you're having fun or not :)

I will miss my family this holiday, but I haven't been home for a Thanksgiving in 3 years. We are going to a friend's house where his annual get-together is talk of the town for weeks. It should be fun, but no doubt, family will be on my mind.

I'm thankful for all that I've been blessed with in my life. I've said it before, but if it weren't for God's plan, I would most likely be dead or would have grown up an orphan. Instead, I've been blessed with a loving family, the chance to receive education, the comfort of knowing that if I'm ever in trouble I have someone to turn breaks my heart that there are so many children out there who have grown up (or are now) without these blessings.

So today, like every day, I really do thank God for all the blessings in my life.

I'm also thankful for people like my grandfather, my own father, and my older brother for serving in the Army, protecting this country alongside countless other soldiers. May all those veterans get the love and respect they deserve, on this day and always.
