/ˈTHaNGkfəl/ to be conscious of a benefit received.
I had the chance to spend Thanksgiving weekend with my hubs' family in good 'ol Tennessee. The weekend was filled with lots of love from their sweet yellow lab, Loula, and other fun memories - including seeing The Christmas Carol at the UT Theater and doing a hike together as a family.
As we flew back to our home in California, I can't help but be so grateful for the many blessings I've received - the biggest one perhaps being the gift of family. Both my own, and the new family I've inherited through marriage.
