The turkey sugar cookies... The pies... The Pumpkin Torte...
Doing something nice for my new neighbors... The laundry that piled up over the weekend... My lost cell phone... Trey's not-yet-learned lines for his Thanksgiving play... Traveling with a two year old this week... The grocery shopping... The Christmas shopping... The Lego E-bay shopping... :)
And instead, I'm choosing to just sit still (well, as still as I get... poor Tyler, I take after my mother) and be thankful. Because if none of that other stuff gets done, no one will remember a year from now anyway.
But they might remember if I had a thankful heart.
Choosing to be thankful today. Because I have so very much to be thankful for.
And because being thankful is a choice.
"The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with joy!" ~ Psalm 126:3
