Thanks to YOU!

Nov 23, 2021

 You are what I am THANKFUL for during the month of November. 

During the month I will be reflecting on YOU and how you have blessed my life. 


Years ago, during Thanksgiving a pastor shared that we needed to think of three people from our past who were important to us and thank them by writing them a note. I did it! I will never forget how it made my heart feel full and those who I thanked gained joy to hear how they touched my life.


You’re thought of and I pray for you. We may see each other often or not at all but this is what I think of you and thank God for the impact you have had in my life.

Love you, my friend.
