thankful thursday november


i love november and its promise of holidays near and turning weather!
its the sneaking up of a closing year and a chance to count up blessings...to put words to thankful thoughts.    

today i'm thankful for the quiet rain and falling leaves, busy hands and a clear mind. for matt finding plastic mistletoe and following me around the house with it.
i'm thankful for my max slipping into bed with me this morning...for the moment when he asked me to tuck his shirt in extra tight before school...for that one last glance he gave me as he walked into his classroom.
i'm thankful for the tiny, good, and happy moments that can define a day. a month. a year. 

they are many and many. 

****************************
come join me for thankful thursdays this month!
and be sure to add a link to your list or thoughts or stories so i can read along!

p.s. the picture above is from a little photo shoot max and i did for the next volume of kinfolk!
i'll share more about it in the coming weeks...but for now...i'm pleased as punch to be contributing!

  9. I love your list and I love this photo even more! I'm giving thanks everyday in November. I agree that this is the time of year to take stock of all the good in life and give thanks (and not just because it Thanksgiving time). Feel free to come link up with me, too! Thank you for another beautiful post. I am grateful for all that you share with us.
