Concerning Thanksgiving

I've been contemplating what I should write concerning Thanksgiving.

I could go through some memories of past Thanksgiving Days. I would tell you about the one where my parents left me to go to San Antonio. I would tell you about the ones where I end up sick before we even eat the food. I could tell you about the one where we ran a 5K in 15 degree weather. Or, maybe I would tell you about the one where Richard met my family - that's a good story.

I could tell you what I am thankful for this year. I am thankful for my job, for my warm apartment, for the last year of dental school. I am thankful for our cars and that we were able to make repairs on them this year. I am thankful for God's direction in decisions made and the ones still coming. I am thankful for my salvation. I am thankful for my friends that have encouraged and challenged me this year. I am thankful for my family, both near and far away, and that my love for them keeps on going no matter how far we apart we are.

I could tell you about our plans this year. About how we are going to visit Hubs's family tomorrow and that I'm making a special pie just for his grandpa. About how I can't wait for leftover turkey and how I am hoping to get great shopping deals on Friday.

But instead, I'm just going to wish you a very relaxing and happy Thanksgiving Day and weekend. I hope we can get refreshed and energized for the rest of the year!

You definitely have lots of blessings this year! Hurrah! :-)

I'm bringing pie to my Thanksgiving dinner, but I will undoubtedly buy it at the store. Hehe.

Happy Thanksgiving!
