Thankful: Day 5

I am thankful for soccer and the joy it brings my family.  Sissy & Brody both play and have fro years. I am thankful for the discipline and teamwork skills that it teaches them.  I am thankful for the joy it brings for me to watch it.  And yes, I am even thankful for the 20+ soccer jerseys my hubby owns and the 20+ hours a week he spends watching it on tv (kidding......).

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?
