While I may still have tons to do, i.e., peel potatoes, stuff the turkey, and some light cleaning before the guests arrive, I find myself reminding myself of all that I have to be thankful for.
I am thankful for our table filled with glorious food, for the people joining us in this feast, for family and friends and the occasional stranger who touches our lives in a positive way. I am thankful for this big old house that keeps us dry and warm. I am grateful for the children, they bring such wonder and love to our everyday. I am thankful for the four days I have off due to this holiday. I am thankful! Glory be to God!
I am thankful for the four day weekend I have thanks to this Holiday!!! My plans are to begin holiday baking, craft making, invitation writing and general prep and finalization of our upcoming ornament exchange, and our family Christmas Eve luncheon. During quiet time (what’s that?!), I would like to settle down with the little ones to watch Thanksgiving themed film. I posted a few favorites in a prior post. You can see them here. I am looking forward to drinking egg nog, reading holiday themed books with the children, playing Thomas Trains with Elliot and Fisher Price Little People with Amelia.
What are you thankful for?
