Happy Thanksgiving!

I wanted to drop in and wish everyone a happy and blessed Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for. 

Although it may seem basic, here are some things I’m grateful for:

  • Gift of salvation
  • Eyes to see God’s amazing world
  • Ears to hear and experience
  • Legs that move
  • Warm home
  • Tons of family who love me and love each other
  • Platform to share with you ((the blog)) and kids across the world ((my books))

And the list goes on.

I’d love to hear something you’re grateful for!

Thank you for being faithful, loyal readers. Happy Thanksgiving from all the Maxwells.


The Steve Maxwell Family

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”
Psalm 100:4

  1. … and I am grateful for your, Sarahs, endurance in writing the blog. It delights me as a reader, rejoices me and makes me feel connected to you as Christians. Thank you for sharing !Waltraud from Vienna / Austria

  2. I’m grateful for my family, my country, our servicemen and first responders and this amazing blog 😉

  3. I am thankful for so many many things. Of course my family, my job, our menagerie, the list goes on! Right this minute I’m thankful for patience.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving Maxwell family.

    Here in the UK we don’t celebrate thanksgiving, I wish we did have a specific date set aside for remembering to be grateful for all we have and our many blessings.

    I am grateful for my family, and my salvation, and grateful too for my ability to knit, it gives me great pleasure to create warm clothing for my family and be of use to them despite lacking mobility.

  5. I’m thankful for: Salvation, friends, family, great food, walks, times playing music, and much more!

  6. I am thankful for lord dying on cross for me , thankful for warm house food on table . Thankful for my family and most all thankful for Maxwell family the blog and all books

  7. I am currently very thankful for a new baby on the way, for God’s answer of yes to my little sister’s(I think she and Abby are about the same age she’s 10) 4 years of prayer to be a big sister aspestaly since Dr. told mom 3 years ago that she had less than 5% chance, and that all the family recently told that #11 is on the way in may have not been negative.

    1. Charisa, very special that your family has another baby on the way! Very affirming for your sister to pray expectantly and persistently and now to see an exciting answer to those prayers.

  8. I hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving. 🙂 I have always, always thanked God for eyes that I could read His Word with. I’ve never actually known anyone else that did that, so people probably think I’m crazy, but I don’t know where I would be without being able to read my Bible! I’m so glad I have that ability!

    1. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Eyesight to read God’s Word is a great thing to be thankful for. I enjoy listening to Scripture, but it is true. I learn it better when I read it, can highlight, make notes, and study it.

  9. I have so very many wonderful things to be thankful for in this life (many of which are similar to those on your list!), though on Thanksgiving Day, one of the first things that comes to mind for me is “I’m thankful I don’t have to cook or do dishes today,” lol! (Our tradition has always been to travel outside of our small town, go out and have the “least traditional” Thanksgiving meal we can find — this year it was ramen and sushi — go for long, long walks and talks, and intermitently warm up with with plenty of Starbucks stops — thankfully, they are open!). But aside from all of that, I am thankful for opportunities to learn, and grow, and set forth on new adventures ? (Did you do a morning “Turkey Trot this year? I thought of you on mine!)

    1. Wow, Katie. I think your family gets the prize for the most unusual, creative Thanksgiving. The girls and Nathan had a Thanksgiving morning Turkey Trot.

  10. I hope you had a very blessed Thanksgiving, Maxwell family! I have been following your blog for some time now but have never posted before. I have so much to be thankful for; I am so thankful and praising God that my brother is doing so much better and no longer battling cancer; thankful that even with my own health struggles I am alive and able to get out of bed each day 🙂 and so thankful for such loving, supportive family and friends!

    P.S. Your blog has been such an encouragement to me the last several years 🙂

    1. Charissa,
      Thank you so much for posting your first comment! Love hearing from our readers. Wow. You all have been through a lot with health issues. Exciting to hear that your brother is cancer-free and you are doing better too! I’m glad the blog has been an encouragement.

  11. Happy very belated thanksgiving! 🙂 I’m thankful for my family, my friends, my home, and you all and the blog! 🙂
