A Week For Thankfulness

This week the United States celebrates Thanksgiving. The time together with family and friends on the specific day makes me pause and think about all of the things to be thankful for. We live in an imperfect world fill with blessings and challenges….some random, some self created. In my opinion, this is the time to take a step back and focus on all the beauty of life as we live it. It’s easy to get caught up in the negativity of the world we live in, being reminded of it daily via news and online access.

I start with being thankful for all of the people in my life that I love and enjoy. Whether it be family or friends. Think about how many people you have come to know and love throughout your life. Be thankful for the love that comes from those relationships as well as the guidance we receive from others experience.

Think about the beauty of the world we live in and how inspiring nature is in its natural state.

From that overall view point, I come down to those quiet, peaceful moments with those closest to you albeit a parent, spouse, child or very close friend. In those moments we help each other grow and find peace within.

And that brings me back to my faith and trusting in His faithfulness and being grateful for it.

His Faithfulness

Again, I’m not saying there aren’t issues and challenges we all face daily, but I do believe it’s good to take a step back and think about the people and things that we are blessed with.

Thoughts? As I have said before, everyone reacts to visual art techniques and looks differently, so I am not in the least offended by opinions.

I Quiet My Mind – Featured Art Print


I’m featuring this art print this week for a couple of reasons. First and foremost is the prayer on this print and secondly the print was created from one of my many hikes in the Pacific Northwest.

My wife and I have been blessed with three wonderful daughters and have spent the past weekend in the Seattle area participating in the wedding of our youngest and the last of the three to get married. The ceremony was incredible and my third walk down the aisle with one of my girls. The time we spent with family on both sides is priceless and I am so grateful for my siblings and their children flying in for this celebration. It was an incredible weekend and gives me pause to reflect on how blessed we are.

Mrs. T and I got married in college, waited until our late 20’s to start a family and had the joy of raising three girls (I had to readjust my communication style as I grew up with two brothers and one sister…my poor sister). The time goes by so quickly and has made us very thankful for our family and friends who have blessed our lives. I continue to give thanks for the blessings of life.

May this find you and yours well, happy and blessed…even when the road of life gives you twists and turns.  Kirt
