41 Little Things to be Thankful For - #galpalholiday

Is anyone else having a hard time believing that tomorrow is Thanksgiving? And that Christmas is one month from today? Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, for three reasons. One, my mom and grandma are the best cooks and I know our dinner is going to be amazing. Two, I get to see a bunch of family members that I don;t get to see that often. And three, I have so much to be thankful for. Obviously, I'm thankful for the big things that God blessed me with, like God Himself, my two sweet (though annoying) little sisters, the fact that I have a roof over my head and access to food and water, and my amazing friends, just to name a few. But I'm also beyond thankful for the little things - the little things we seem to take so often for granted.
