30 days of thankful #30

Today I am thankful for transitions. The weekend will be full of putting away November and welcoming in December. I will help decorate the sanctuary for Advent this morning and then head over to visit dad. I picked up an amaryllis for his room to bring in some color and serve as a memory of mom’s tradition of giving us each an amaryllis in December.

Tonight we will have leftovers and finish watching our traditional Thanksgiving weekend movie series.

Tomorrow I will begin the journey of Advent. Advent wreathes and candles are a solid part of my Christmas traditions but I am ready for some new practices. I followed a link from Mary to this devotional. It speaks into my hopes for an Advent practices that reaches outward. I also gifted this Advent set to our grandson because I know his parents want him to have meaningful connections.

It has been good to share these 30 days of thankful. I have noticed how my mind is focusing on gratitude and blessings and perhaps that is best thing to be thankful for as I wrap up the month. Thank you for reading and commenting and encouraging.
