I am celebrating Thanksgiving in Pebble Beach, California (yes, it is beautiful here, absolutely beautiful). And although I had every intention of writing a “With Gratitude” post every day this week, the internet has been spotty and so I apologize that it has taken me a few days to get back to you with Day 3.
If you haven’t been following along, here are the basics…
Sometimes it is easier to focus on the things I don’t have. But I’ve found that’s no way to live.
Instead I want to be someone who constantly feels blessed. Because in all reality I have everything I need, and more. So in honor of the season of Thanksgiving, I have decided to publicly express my gratitude this week on my blog for some of my many blessings.
I am thankful for friends .
Up until recently, I was one of those people who pretty much waited for life to happen. I was a victim of my circumstances, instead of a strong person capable of making plans and building dreams. But over the last year or so, I have decided I want to be very intentional in the way I approach life.
This change has made me very thankful for two types of friends: friends who are a step ahead, gently pushing, prodding, and encouraging me to live abundantly and faithfully, and friends who love me and support me wherever life takes me. Without each of these, I would uninspired to forge a new path, to write a better story.
I love doing life with my friends. I am thankful for each and every one of you.
What kinds of friends are you thankful for today?
