Think About the Little Things...

It's Thanksgiving week, and I am so excited!  I LOVE to's one my absolute favorite pasttimes.  There's something about being in the kitchen that brings me joy.  Though I'm not doing it up like I did last year by cooking all the fixings, (I'm making gumbo and baking cakes!) I am so ready to get in cook mode.

Today, I'm just thankful for the little things that bring me so much joy.  God has done some amazing things in my life this year, and my thankful list is overflowing.

It's so easy to get caught up in the every day hustle and bustle of life that we sometimes forget to remember the little things that bring us happiness. 

The bright smiles on my sons' faces when they wake up in the morning fill my heart with so much joy.

The Good Morning text message I get from a close friend every morning warms my heart and makes me smile.

The "Babe, that was delicious!" my husband belts out after every meal makes me feel all bubbly inside.

Sometimes, all you need to do is take a moment to think about the little things to lighten a heavy heart, or brighten a dark day.

Are you thinking?

Til we meet, laugh, love!

Peace & Blessings,
