Thankful Day 25

Today I am thankful for this holiday season that reminds me to be thankful for all that we have.  I am grateful for each day, but I think it is important to remember all the time that we are more fortunate than others.  The picture in this blog post about Black Friday caused me to pause.  Most people I know don't seem to go crazy about Black Friday shopping but you hear stories about the madness.  I am not opposed to the fun and deal getting of BF, but I know that I can live without it.

I have only recently started reading A Place Called Simplicity and it's funny that it is about adoption for a variety of reasons; a) I was searching for simplicity blogs as opposed to minimalism, b) adoption has been on my heart and mind, and c) a pastor here in GF has mentioned this family in his radio ads! While I don't know if adoption is in our future, I do know that many children and families are waiting for each other.  A friend recently returned from their second international adoption and she herself is adopted, so it has been so neat to hear about their journey.
