I wanted to give a shout out to Penny and want to encourage everyone to do her NOVEMBER CHALLENGE
Everyday you sign her guestbook and leave a comment of what you're greatful for, on that particular day. A few days before Thanksgiving she'll compile the list YOU sent and email you all the things you're personally greatful for and then you can read them outloud at your thanksgiving table. Isn't that an awesome idea? I'm doing and it will become a tradition that I'm going to have my immediate family do every year, so we keep the focus. I think I'll do it for December to, but have us list how we're greatful to God! I think we all get caught up in the hussle and bussle of everyday life and we focus so much on the negatives in our lives, that we REALLY need to focus on the good things. Maybe you don't have your health, but you might have an amazing family surrounding you and holding you up, etc. We ALL have trials, but I think the biggest trial is remember that we also all have joy and things we can be greatful for in our lives.
