It’s the last day of November and my 30 days of thanks giving have come to a close. During this time, I’ve realized how very much of life I take for granted and my hope is that I will appreciate even the small aspects more as a result of contemplating gratitude for an entire month.
Christmas is coming and even though Thanksgiving is now past, thanks giving is not really over. Not by a long shot. I won’t blog every day about my gratefulness, but I’m certain I will continue to write about aspects I’m thankful for. I do know I plan to take a few moments each day and express my thanks to my God since He is the Giver of my life and the One I turn to when circumstances aren’t exactly what I’d hoped. He’s taught me so much through the passage of scripture that I call my guiding verses (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) and I am so thankful.
As my attention turns to the upcoming Christmas season and preparation for our family celebration, I find myself thankful today for musical reminders. I love Christmas music, I love the old Christmas movies, I love the decorations. So it seems fitting on this last day of November before I transition from Thanksgiving to celebrating the birth of my Savior that I share a song from one of my favorite movies – Holiday Inn. Bing Crosby sang it well when he sang “I’ve Got Plenty to Be Thankful For.”
