Today we give thanks. I for the first time, decided to join in on the month of Thanks by posting 1 think I was thankful for each day. I didn’t post every single day but I made sure I made up for that each day. November was a rough month. We started out with the flu, a broken dishwasher, and a cold. We had a dead fish, a near death driving moment and finally my amazing croup.
However, November has also been blessed. Although we were sick we live in a country where medicine and doctors are readily available. Jason and I can afford a dishwasher and to complain about 1st world problems. We are alive, we are breathing and we are surrounding by love and amazing people.
Happy Thanksgiving folks!
