We visited Hudi and Mollie a bit ago, and I saw this on their wall and loved it.

**For the month of November each year, I try to focus on something I’m thankful for each day. It is the month that holds Thanksgiving where I live, after all. Focusing on the positive and remembering the little things that make life great is something I should do more often.

Thankful for my Goofy Husband

Goofy. Not Mickey. Haha 🙂 The company I worked for had a Grand Meetup in Orlando this year, and when I came home, my husband greeted me with this:

Book Clubs and Bible Studies

I’ve been missing regular meetings with friends sharing thoughts on books and Bible passages, but I’m traveling enough that joining a group isn’t really practical. After searching online I came across sites such as the Women’s Bible Cafe. It’s perfect for me!

Right now we are studying Elijah, and beginning late November we are going to discuss the book The Women of Christmas: Experience the Season Afresh with Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna by Liz Curtis Higgs.

The group meets something like 15 times a week, accounting for different time zones and schedules. If you can’t make your regular time, you just join another group. Or skip a week. All communication is done via typing so shaky networks are not a problem (as I discovered yesterday while traveling).

I’m thankful to share thoughts and opinions on books and studies in a way that works with my current life situation.

Cute Little Creatures

IMG_7626Woolly bears are always fun to see in the autumn. They bring super happy memories for me since they were all over the place when we brought our first child home from the hospital after he was born.

Look how adorable this one is.

Wedding Veils and Cross-Stitch

IMG_7641Mor Mor made us this cross-stitch when we were married. I love keeping it by my wedding veil, and I’m so thankful for my husband and for the time my grandma put into making us this beautiful gift.

As for the veil, I appreciate that as well. I wanted a hat for my wedding, and the ladies at the shop heard that. This valued item was in their back room, and when they saw me in my wedding dress and learned I wanted a hat veil, they pulled it out and offered it to me. A riding hat from the 1800s that they valued. I have always appreciated their sharing it with me. It means a lot, and it’s treasured.
