Thankfulness

There is a trace of snow in the ground this morning, the house is filled with the smell of Thanksgiving dinner cooking and will soon be filled with people who love and care for each other. On this day of giving thanks, here are a few things for which I am thankful:

I live in a world that I can look at in wide-eyed wonder from time to time and sometimes get to capture a small part of that wonder with my camera.

I serve a God who I can also gaze upon in the same wonderment and awe.

I am surrounded by family and friends.

And I'm thankful for you, for your visits here and comments. It makes the last two and a half years of posting photos and thoughts from my part of the world very worthwhile.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
