"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it." Matthew 13:45-46

Thankful for the Little Things

Yesterday my family spent Thanksgiving in Hershey with my Mom, brother, and his family. We had to eat in shifts since there were so many of us - eight grandchildren and five adults. While the kids were eating my mom asked each of her grandchildren to say what they are thankful for this year.

I have two nieces and a nephew that were adopted from Ethiopia a few years ago. The things they mentioned they were thankful for were things like: family, shelter, water, heat, electricity and clothes. It was a reminder to be grateful for all those little things we often take for granted. What are you thankful for this year?
