happy thanksgiving

I know, yesterday was Thanksgiving. But around here we've got a whole weekend to celebrate. Last night we had Thanksgiving dinner with my family, tonight we are headed to Tommy's parent's for another celebration.

I have so much to be thankful for this year... but I truly don't know where to start or how to say it. I just read this blog post and I was inspired.

It is exactly what I would say if I were as talented a writer as her. Here is my favorite part:

I used to believe that happy, optimistic people were just in denial. That they weren't as realistic as the rest of us. But not anymore. Optimists just make better choices. They choose to believe God is good. They choose to believe their lives are good. And maybe "optimist" is the wrong label. Maybe the right label should simply be "thankful."

This year, I am thankful that God truly is good all the time.
