Monday, November 15


This is the month of November, the month of giving thanks, the month to focus on all the good that has happened, the time to begin giving more....  but for some reason I am really struggling this month.  I don't know why. I have plenty to be thankful for, but for some reason I am looking for something "meaningful" to be thankful about.  I want to "wow" someone with my gratitude... How selfish am I???  So today, I am going to try to give thanks in the mundane of life over the last two weeks...
