|Stopping at an old roadside park|
to check out the ice.
|Driving in the shade with snow on the left, blue sky on the right, and sunshine in between!|
I'm thankful The Man got a 5-day weekend and could spend some time on things around the house and yard. Like getting our firewood! It's too bad he couldn't work a full week ~
|The girls both had|
this past week.
I'm thankful for all the rights, freedoms, and privileges we enjoy in this country. The girls and I attended a Remembrance Day service on Tuesday and one of the speakers asked us to think about what fallen soldiers from the past might think about our current use of freedom. Would they still be proud to have given their lives for their country, or would they be grieved by how often we abuse our rights and take our freedom for granted? I must confess, I never give much thought to that perspective, but I want to try and keep it in mind a little more often. I guess this, too, is an area where I need to think more about what it looks like to live in gratitude.
What are you most thankful for today?
