Today I am feeling full of thanks. I am thank full.
I know that most of you will be happily consuming various forms of turkey and green beans in a few hours, but I wanted to squeeze in my thanks giving before it all begins.
As I bask in the glow of a short work week, I finally have a moment to reflect on the past year. As I look back, it’s so easy to focus on things that don’t matter. It’s so easy to be pessimistic and wallow in the things that didn’t go the way I wanted them to go. But this is a season of thanks, of gratitude, of awareness. Though these past 12 months have brought huge changes and difficulties, I can’t help but feel so thankful.
I’m thankful for a loving Savior.
I’m thankful for a husband who cheers me up, supports my dreams, and will never leave my side.
I’m thankful for coffee, while I’m on the subject. Without it, I would die. I have a problem.
I’m thankful for a mischievous puppy who both infuriates me and melts my heart on a daily basis. He’s growing up MUCH too quickly.
I’m thankful for a good job that is close to home. And thankful for the old job that provided me with so many friends and priceless life experiences.
I’m thankful for our pack of friendly, healthy cows and a great first year at this new dairy.
Happy Thanksgiving from this Dairy Man + wife to you and yours!
