Thankfulness Lately

Leila and I were driving down the highway yesterday and all of a sudden she started listing off all the things she’s thankful for.  At the end of it, she was so happy it was if she might burst.  It was a quick reminder that giving thanks always leads to joy.

In that spirit, here are a few things I’m thankful for lately.
