I haven’t been doing a 30 days of thankfulness but I’m altogether in awe of how God has been gracious to me this month.
Nothing special has happened, and what I mean by that is nothing out of the ordinary, but I am thankful. I’m thankful that both kids are well right now. No one is sick. I’m thankful that goalie-Naomi stopped a bunch of goals at her soccer tournament and by that, is feeling successful! I’m thankful that my oldest, after waiting to ride all day at a rodeo fundraiser, wasn’t hurt when her horse didn’t cooperate.
Thankfulness comes in a lot of shapes and sizes and with all of those everyday-situations that I mentioned, there was a lot of pain involved. My kids are well now, but 3 weeks of pneumonia and related things aren’t fun for anyone. Naomi stopped those goals but they lost the tournament. And Hope, even though she was safe, did not get to make her run because she was disqualified for going off course.
I guess in a lot of ways thankfulness is how we look at things, perhaps.
In honor of thankfulness, new and old friends and the season full of gratitude, I’m giving something else away today.
Apparently I’m all about the giveaways this month here at my site. I hope you are enjoying it (hint: I have one more planned that you won’t want to miss!). Just let me know if you want me to stop.
Today, joyously, I get to give $50 in credit to Gussy Sews’ online shop!
We all know that Gussy is famous for her adorable Gussy Ruffle but she has been branching out lately into chunky crocheted cowls.
I have a Pumpkin Spice one (pictured on top) and I love it.
I’m going to end this giveaway early this week because it’s Thanksgiving this week and I have a lot of yummy baking to do on Wednesday, I want to snuggle my kids, and to be honest, I don’t think you’ll need until Wednesday to enter. You will have from now until Tuesday night at 9pm Pacific to enter.
There will be a few ways to enter. Check the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post to enter. Click through and it will tell you how.
