November Gratitudes

While the first thing that tends to jump to people's minds at the word 'November' is likely Thanksgiving Day, I did my very best to not lose sight of my blessings from the first day of the month to the last.  I am blessed beyond measure.

  • 11.30- Leftover 'Fish Legs' from our date at Joe's Crab Shack
  • 11.29- Jake's home improvement accident involving a work knife and his arm could have been so serious. I'm thankful he didn't die. No, really. It could have gone that way and God kept it from being so.
  • 11.28- Tallied up the hours scheduled for this week and it merits a low, "how awesome is this!" whistle
  • 11.27- Excellent message at church from Pastor Godwin
  • 11.26- Same as yesterday
  • 11.25- No fights breaking out in our store
  • 11.24- Happy Eat-Yourself-Into-A-Stupor Day! :)
