Today starts my 31 days of Thanksgiving countdown of sorts. I love, love, LOVE Thanksgiving which is ironic because the actual Thanksgiving day has been, hmm, kind of ruined for me over the past several years. Ahhh, family drama. Gotta love it! Still, the food, the feasts, the beauty of fall, the spirit of gratitude and thankfulness taking over, and a great deal of my ancestors came over here from England during the time of the Pilgrims. I just love Thanksgiving. Thinking on things in life that I am truly thankful for brings me more happiness then most other ventures in life.
Day one: Today I am so thankful for all the people I know who’ve picked up their lives and moved somewhere else on the globe to minister the gospel and to share the love of Christ, through feeding the hungry, providing housing to the homeless, rescuing children from slavery, educating the poorest children in the harshest of communities. I am beyond blessed to know so many individuals who've uprooted their lives for such a calling. These people have made the world such a more beautiful place and I am very thankful for them.
