Finds for Fridays: November 23

Finds for Fridays is my way of sharing some of the wonderful blogs posts I read each week. I am currently following close to 100 blogs and I at least scan them as much as I can. Each week, I'll note and "set aside" some posts that especially speak to me for whatever reason. And each Friday that I am able, I'll share them with you.

Should we Thank God for Ordinary Things? by Dan Walsh at 3 Men Walk Into A Blog (about how thankfulness can change our joy)

A bit of inspiration, and some learning for the long weekend. So thankful for these posts - and those of you who stop by. Thanks!
