Some Thoughts

     As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday I've noticed lots of people taking to their facebook pages, twitter and blogs to say what they are thankful for. My newsfeed and dashboard are overloaded with them, and I've enjoyed reading what all of you have shared! It occurs to me that instead of waiting for the appropriate holiday to come around and only participating for 30 days each year, it might be a nice thing to internally "post" what we're thankful for each day. I thank the Lord every night when I say my prayers for all that he has blessed me with, but what a nice refreshment it would be for every morning or lunch hour to look myself in the mirror or maybe close my eyes and think: Today I'm thankful for the roof over my head... or the clothes on my back...or sweet baby breath kisses from my daughter. Perhaps it would make the no-good, very-bad days not so terrible and maybe this lady a little more glass half-full.

Today, however, I'll join the masses and proclaim to the world: I am so thankful for this life I've been blessed with. I love all if it's intricacies, speed bumps, road blocks, surprises, and smiles. It's quite lovely. Oh yes, I'm thankful for all of you, too! Love, Layne

the loves of my life...

p.s. I've been working on a pretty non-spectacular, but I think rather fun post about people's shopping lists--hopefully I'll be able to share it before the holiday!
