I, like many others, take an awful lot for granted. Life throws its curve balls, and I frequently get so caught up in the unpleasant twists that I’m blind to all the blessings.
So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’m going to share a different blessing in my life in my “A Month of Gratitude” series.
