Monday Giveaway Linky: Thankfulness Edition

So! I hope you had a lovely holiday weekend, US heroes. And to the rest of the world, I hope you have had a lovely regular weekend. We just celebrated Thanksgiving here. It was nice. I got a lot done this weekend, which always makes me happy.

I’d also like to say a word about thankfulness. Many people that I know post something that they’re thankful for daily. That’s super awesome, let me tell you. I tend not to say much because sometimes I fear that I’m just adding to the noise, and I don’t like to do that.

However, I have to say that I have been tremendously thankful this year. I have a terrific husband, and some pretty great boys.

On a whole different level though, I’m even more thankful for things that many of us never even think about. Every day (every day!!) I get to snuggle into a super comfy couch with warm blankets. I think about the millions of people around the world who don’t have those luxuries, and I’m nearly speechless.

Oh, and here’s another one: I can walk. After blowing out my knee 5 years ago, I’m still amazed every time I am able to go up or down stairs.

This past weekend, I was able to purchase socks and underwear for myself. 2 packages of each! How many people don’t have just that luxury?

Too many.

I am just one person, and there are many times that the most I can do is thank God for the amazingness. Today though, I also hope that He gives me a chance to help someone else somehow. Sometimes, even though I am so profoundly thankful for things like underwear and blankets and a knee that works, I still get caught up in the daily stresses and worries. I’m trying not to, but I still fail at that routinely.

All that to say, wow. I am SO blessed. Thank you, Lord, for giving me so much. And please, let me find ways to help others as a result.

While I’m over here thinking my thankful thoughts, won’t you check out the lovely linky below and win something? For me? Thanks.
