November is traditionally the month to give thanks. But it’s also something that I want to make a better effort at doing regularly, through the good times & the bad times. Life is hard sometimes and it is good to focus on what we can be thankful for rather than the difficulties. The difficulties will pass even though in the midst of the moment it doesn’t always feel like it. This has come up a few times in conversations recently with friends and in things I’ve been reading. So here’s my first installment of Thankful Thursday.
This week I am thankful for being able to visit my hubby’s family, our rascal cats (love those guys even when they are naughty!), and this beautiful view we caught as we drove across the state last weekend.

The photo above is just west of Ritzville, WA taken with my iPhone. (Click on the photo to see a larger version) There was a sun break between showers & freezing rain as we were driving across the state last weekend. In my imagination this is what southern Italy might look like. Someday we want to see Italy in the flesh. My husband’s ancestors came from southern Italy.
