What I’m Thankful For…

Almost every year, starting November 1st, I see people posting on facebook and various platforms online what they’re thankful.

I tried with my phone, which is a Galaxy Note 5, but phone pictures NEVER turn out as good when it comes to the moon, at least for me, because the zoom isn’t great! And they’re grainy for me.  Continue reading
