Happy Thanksgiving!

(My two B-E-A-U-tiful nieces! Rebekah and Emma!)

Well, I haven't made a post in a while because my computer had been typing backwards on me. I know, imagine how frustrating that is! It gets old rather quickly.

Anyways, I love Thanksgiving! I always make a list of the things I'm most thankful for and it always reminds me of how truly blessed I really am! I really don't have many things to frown about if I think about it.

There for a while I was starting to hate life, or actually not starting, but hating life... After my uncle Carl died, it made me realize that seasons come and go in life and that, yeah sure, it's not all enjoyable, but that life is NEVER that bad... Period... The more you dwell on the things that aren't working out for you the worse it seems to get. However, it does work both ways, so when you dwell on the positive things in life, the more you start to realize how many good things you actually obtain...

So, I for one am starting to count my blessings, and I now walk around with a huge smile on my face for no apparent reason.. :D Gosh, I love smiles!

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. ~Philippians 4:8
