Multitude Monday, Take 267

“If gratitude is an antidote for anxiety, and giving thanks is a real cure for stress, we don’t have to relegate thanksgiving to a holiday, for giving thanks to God revolutionizes all of our days.” (Ann Voskamp)

Continuing to give thanks to God after the Thanksgiving holiday for the gifts He continues to give, including...

4480. my seamstress sister-in-law fixing pants for me and the boys
4481. grace to keep my mouth shut
4482. the way Jude puts a big space in the middle of two-syllable words
