"Rejoice always! pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

On this day of Thanksgiving (and EVERY day), I am thankful for my dear husband, Evan.  He's the love of my life & my best friend.  I love you, EJ! (INFINITY & BEYOND)
I am thankful for my family---each and every one of them!  For my sweet friends: Risa, Amanda, Ashley, & Heather.  For my amazing blogger-friends & writing partners-in-crime! And for my darling baby boy, Gabriel.  <3 I am thankful for my cozy home.  For my car.  For ALL the books.  For my blog.  :]  For poetry.  For my ability to write the thoughts of my mind & heart.

God has blessed me greatly.  Words cannot adequately express my simple & humble gratitude.

Happy Thanksgiving!

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
