This morning, I am reflecting on an awesome Thanksgiving week one last time before we slip into the Christmas season. I don’t know about you, but it’s easy for me to move into a giving spirit when I am full from a grateful heart. And that’s what I’m feeling today – very full and very grateful.
Is everything perfect? Absolutely not! But now is not the time or place to write that story. That will come later.
Today I am thankful for extended-family fellowship I enjoyed yesterday. I am thankful we all arrived and returned home safely. I am thankful I heard my mother chuckle about my Rooster Bowl story. I am thankful to share sweet time with my sisters and their families and all those big and little young’uns as the family continues to grow.
And I am thankful that I am touched by beautiful music that inspires me to write and reflect. Right now, my favorite rendition of Away in a Manager (Kenny G) is filling the air in my upstairs room.
And so, as we pass from a thankful heart to a giving heart, I am prepared to give away up to twenty-five autographed copies of Reflections – one to each person leaving a “grateful” comment on this post. That’s all you have to do. You don’t have to be present to win and there are no strings attached. If you already have a copy, you can pass the gift along to another.
So leave your “grateful” comment. I will follow-up with a personal e-mail to receive mailing details from you. The e-mail address you leave will be used for no other purpose – and that’s a promise!
