Each November, I post every day about something simple for which I am thankful that day.  Often, we are thankful for the large things, but we forget to see the small and simple blessings that surround us each day.

Today, I am thankful for beautiful weather. I have the windows and doors open, and we are enjoying this beautiful day. It’s 77ºF here (23ºC). It’s much cooler than yesterday (it was 84º yesterday), and we should have a few days this week in the 70’s before it drops into the 60’s next week. 


What are you thankful for today?

Have a procedure scheduled for 11/14 and two tests scheduled for 11/7 to make sure it’s OK to have the 11/14 procedure! Kind of tense, but happy the doctors want to make sure the procedure will go as safely as possible.
