The Month of Thanks has arrived!

Yes, it has been over a month since I have blogged.  Generally, that means that I have either been so busy I haven't thought about the blog or that something kind of hard is going on in my life.  This time it has been a big dose of both.  Between work, Hurricane Matthew which threw us quite a curve ball (no power, water, and many washed out and blocked roads for weeks,) and a new struggle legally stemming from my divorce it has been a bit overwhelming to think about writing. 

But Fall has arrived and so has November!  I love Fall.  It truly is my favorite season and I am sad that I haven't had more time to enjoy it this year.  Thanksgiving is just around the corner and if you didn't know, it is my very favorite holiday.  I don't know why, and most people look at me a bit odd when I say that, but it always has been. 

As has been my tradition in blogging (sans the last couple of hard years) I have tried to share on the blog the things I am thankful for.  This grew out of  my very first "thankful post" from 2006: In all things give thanks.  It is a good exercise to help me remember what is important and throw off the stress of the mundane. 

Day 1:
I am thankful for a God that sees me through the challenges.  He is seeing me through one right now and I find myself in a position of thanking Him for the challenges as well.  I want His will for my life and want to walk in faith and not be caught in fear (as fear is not from the Lord!)  I am thankful for God the Father and how He cares for His children. 
What are you thankful for?  Please share in the comments and if you are a blogger, I challenge you to share what your thankful for this season as there are always more blessings than we count!
