One reason I am doing this blog is to get people speaking about and writing down the things for which they are thankful. Most people wait for feelings of thankfulness, but we should live more purposefully. We can obviously be thankful for big things, but much of the joy in life is found in expressing thanks for little things. Lavender for example.
Headed to Africa today. Love this part of the world where giraffes roam. I am so thankful that God made these amazing animals. So elegant and classy. I love their coat and their incredibly long neck that defies evolution.
There are so many things about giraffes that I can think thanks about. They have long black eyelashes, huge brown eyes, and their purple tongue is extremely long and slimy. Their brown, patchy coat is so mellow and comforting. I love how if they eat too long at a acacia thorn tree, which is one of their favorites, the tree produces a bitter taste in its leaves to make the giraffe stop munching and move to another tree. Our God is amazing. So thankful.
