Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!  You may be watching the parade this morning.  You might be watching football or a movie marathon on tv.  Or you may be cooking feverishly in the kitchen.  Or perhaps you are just lounging on the couch, resting up for the huge meal. 

I do not have a huge craft project to show to you today.  If you do want a last minute idea, I suggest writing your favorite verse about thanksgiving on your chalkboard wall/picture/table/etc.  Because, let's be honest, doesn't everyone have something that is covered with chalkboard paint?

No matter what your plans are for today, let's remember to praise Him for all of His abundant blessings!  I was challenged recently to make a list of 100 things I was thankful for.  I thought I would share them with you today.  They are completely random--that is just how my mind works--but I like to thank my God for the big things and the small.
