30 days of Thanksgiving - #1

Thankful for a few small, yet significant things.
First thankful that I live in a country where I have the right and freedom to vote for those in government, and a chance to make a difference in this nation.

Next, I'm thankful for the fun little times that I have with my siblings, and the fun little jokes that we have. Right now, until Thanksgiving, we are trying our best to go "sugar free". So the kids keep asking if we can get ice cream, and I have to keep saying "no", and that we can wait until Thanksgiving. Yesterday, one of my sister's (who shall remain nameless *ahem* *Harmony*) gave me a shopping list to take to the grocery store. And at the bottom she wrote "ice cream (he he he) (non-optional)". Haha...I love my family!


Last, but not least, I'm thankful for the opportunity to watch the next generation come, and see the interaction between three different generations. My older sister, Melody, and her family came over for dinner last night. 
This is Christiana (7) and Danielle (2) reading together. Christiana is my little sister, and Danielle is my niece. Different generations, yet they are going to be so close, being so close in age. It was just so sweet watching them sit on the couch and read together! (Christiana was reading, and Danielle was "reading". She likes to pretend she's reading by saying random words. It's so cute!)
Then later the same evening, I walked into my Dad's office to see this sight, and immediately ran upstairs to grab my phone, so I could snap this picture.
Daddy, aka Granddaddy, reading to his daughter (Christiana) and granddaughter (Danielle). Such a sweet sight!

So these are just a few small things that happened yesterday (since I'm posting yesterday's post today) that I am thankful for. Just small ordinary things that make a difference in my life, and bring a smile to my face. What are you thankful for?

Stay strong in Jesus! He's got you! His death covers everything!!

Because of His blood,
Faith Christine
