Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for all we have...and I find that so many start "thanksgiving" posts - which I think is awesome, because we all need to stop and reflect and be thankful. The thing that grieves my heart is that it seems after the holidays so many go back to forgetting all that they have to be thankful of.

I was watching my daughter this morning as she stretched out to take a nap, little feet peeeking out under the covers, and in the background it was a perfect picture of us when Alexis was just 9 months old. I couldn't help but capture this moment.  I looked at the picture and thought "she has no clue how she leaves footprints on my heart by just being her....not because of really any one specific thing, but because she is such a miracle...she is truly a "God-send" and she is beyond amazing.  Every day I am thankful and humbled that I get to be her Mommy.

"I will praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:14

It made me want to share with you to not stop being thankful just because the "season of thanksgiving" is over.  Regardless of what you're going through remember that you are fearfully and wonderfully made and no matter what - never forget that! Live every day just as you do leading up to the thanksgiving holiday.  Rejoice and be thankful for just the opportunity to wake every day and breath...because every day you wake is another chance for a 'do-over.'  Make today better than yesterday and before you know it you'll be through the storm and the rainbow will be bright!

As I look at this picture I think it's so important to never stop walking....always keep moving and trying because you are fearfully & wonderfully made.... live every day as if it's "Thanksgiving!"
