Today is likely one of my favorite days of the year. A day focused on gratitude, on giving thanks.

I don't always remember the peace that comes when I focus on gratitude. But, today, there will be my focus.

I am grateful for friends and family, my home, with the smell of pies cooking in the oven. Soon, the house will be full of the noise of children and extended family.

I have much to be grateful for. It's not always easy, nor the way *I* think it should be, but it is what it is.

And, no matter what ... whether the road be smooth or bumpy... God is with me. Before me, behind me, surrounding me, holding me, leading me, guiding me, comforting me, encouraging me.

Of THAT I am very, very grateful!

Have a wonderful, wonderful Thanksgiving!

(and a happy birthday to my kiddos!)
