Thankful

This is a wonderful time of the year to reflect upon God's goodness and to celebrate all that He has done. This week, we travel to be with family, and I am really looking forward to seeing everyone. Cody is so excited to see his cousins and to play with his "buddies." They always have such a great time when they're together.

It's hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner, and that in a week or so, I'll begin digging out all the decorations and starting the hustle and bustle. I am really going to be more intentional this year about keeping that "crazed" look out of my eye as December 25th draws near. It's just not worth it! I want to enjoy the month of December. On the agenda: Lots of singing at church, a trip with my mom and sis to Chicago to have tea, A day out for shopping with my bff Charity, making cookies and a gingerbread house with my boys (I found a kit at Sam's that looked so fun!), Cody's birthday, time with family, and of course, Advent. There are so many things I love about this time of the year that I often lose sight of in the busy-ness of it all. So this year, I will choose to do it differently!

I will sing of the Lord's great love forever;
with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
~Psalm 89:1-2

I pray each of you has a wonderful holiday. From our house to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
