Thanksgiving Grateful

1. My parents--They live far away, and we can't see each other very often, once a year if we're lucky. Nevertheless they show their love for my kids in very special unique ways. A few days ago, Pippi got a package in the mail. She opened it, saw that it was a CD-ROM and immediately wanted to see the pictures on it, pictures of her ancestors from my mom. The CD was accompanied by a geneology chart. What an incredible baptism gift! Pippi loved it.

2. Good Friends who cook good food

3. Family Traditions--new and old, some being carried on without me. Someday I really hope to sing caroles around my own piano on Thanksgiving Day. Instead, I listened to Rock Band.

4. Nice Kids--My own and my guests'

5. A hot bath, waiting for me, soon...

Happy Thanksgiving! I also miss singing Christmas carols around the piano. That is one of my favorite memories of Thanksgiving with your family.

You do have nice kids, and my kids love to play with them! Thanksgiving was fun--and tasty. You guys are great hosts! Thanks for letting us join your feast.

I hear you about one day being able to reignite traditions - once we're able to talk our husbands into them!
I've really enjoyed reading these posts - they've helped me reflect on how blessed I am too so thank you.
