I love Thanksgiving! I love the smell of turkey filling the house. I love eating all the yummy food. I love spending time with family. And I love that this holiday isn't about presents... it's just about being together and giving thanks. It's fun to be part of The Thankfulness Experiment on Thanksgiving because I'm learning that giving thanks can be a lifestyle... not just something we focus on during the fourth Thursday in November. I'm enjoying this new way of life... and the challenges that come with choosing thanksgiving. God is teaching me so much and I hope you are learning things too.
So, thank you for being thankful. Thank you for taking a few minutes out of each day to list 5 things you're thankful for. Thank you for giving me a peek into your lives as you share your list with me. And thank you for holding me accountable each day. You are such a blessing to me and for that, I am so thankful.
Give thanks for the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1
Tonight, I am thankful for...

3. Broccoli Casserole
4. Introducing the in-laws to Duck Dynasty
