the little things

this time of year, is one of my most favorite times of the year, why you ask? because it's the time of year when you give more than you get, family is the center of everything, and we realize the blessings our heavenly father has put in our lives, whether good or bad, to help us grow and learn and become the wonderful people he created us to be. today is my wonderful mothers 40th birthday and is also thanksgiving! although the decorations, food, and company of my wonderful family was beyond perfect i found myself constantly thinking of the things the things that i am so blessed to have in my life. if you get a chance go read in your bible dictonary under the word will not be disappointed. if i could ask you all to do one thing this holiday season it would be to no take things for granted. be thankful for what you have, when you have it, because you never know when it will be gone. so with that being said...
