Here we are readers, just a few days before Thanksgiving. Today, I have my last guest blogger of the month sharing her thoughts on thankfulness: the charming Elizabeth of Little Black Door.
Almost five years ago I lost my sister and one of my best friends within a month of each other. One after a long illness and one rather suddenly. And although they happened differently, they were equally tough to take. Life seems to go into slow motion after something that traumatic happens. And even though it seems impossible at the time, things do eventually start to move and daily life takes over again. But that impact remains and it forever changes the way you look at things.
She's right, isn't she? Whenever I get down, I have to take a step back and count my blessings. Challenges will arise--some seeming insurmountable and others just annoying--but keeping perspective reminds me that I am very blessed.
Thank you, Elizabeth, for joining the series and contributing your very important perspective!
