Is it so hard to appreciate things these days? Do we not continually look for ways to improve things instead of loving them just the way they are? Maybe that's why I love and adore these gourds?
Aren't they gorgeous in all their bumps, lumps, stripes, textures UNIQUE to them. I know everyone loves a good white pumpkin, too.
And of course, the turban pumpkins. Who could resist their charm? They're adorable hat wearing, multi-stripped, textured, and multi-hued. They're unique, different, and yet lovable just the same. Some even look like they have belly-buttons. Why does this suddenly remind me of VeggieTales?
So, I feel we have a lot to be grateful for, like the pumpkins. We have different characteristics, personalities, tendencies, redundancies, and humor. Yet, we all fit together nicely like the pumpkins and hay on this cart. we have to be Thankful for the grouchy cart pusher in the grocery store who doesn't say THANK YOU, the construction worker who calls you sweetie, the post office employee who reminds you about purchasing CHRISTMAS stamps in September, and of course, our MAKER, GOD Himself.
What more could we be Thankful for in such a season of THANKSGIVING? How can we practice gratitude and thankfulness year 'round without a holiday to remind us? Any tips?
