I am thankful for red wine and good cheese. The perfect meal. As I get older, I am learning to appreciate a good bottle of wine (not the one in the picture, mind you - that was German Gluhwein in honor of a book we just read for book club) and really unique cheese. This week I tried gouda infused with expresso beans....oh.my.goodness. so yummy. I am thankful for treats like these that tantalize our taste buds!
One of my favorite holidays is Thanksgiving! While great food, friends, family and football make for a wonderful day, taking time out of my fast-paced life to think through the many blessings and to express gratitude to God and to others is really why I love this holiday so much. An attitude of gratitude, of course, shouldn't be a once-a-year deal, and hopefully cultivating a thankful heart goes beyond that one special Thursday in November for all of us. Won't you join me in professing your gratitude?
