It doesn't matter what has happened in life. A life falling apart. Thanksgiving. A heart torn apart. Thanksgiving. A bad day gone worse. Thanksgiving. An undoable schedule. Thanksgiving. Loss. Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving regardless. Not based on circumstances. But based on Christ. The Conqueror of Circumstances.

-Leaning into Christ
-Peace on a Friday afternoon
-A baby shower to go to
-A children's book translated to read to my students

-That we are always connect with Him
-Another week of work done
-A quiet house for a few moments
-Getting laundry folded
-Handing out candy to kids (and some of them my students) at the door
