Thankful Thursday

Today in the quiet of the morning I was very aware of this being a thankful kind of day.  I'm full of gratitude for a multitude of things from knowing inner peace, having a dear husband and MYP, being brought up by wonderful parents and siblings, as well as having extended family, friends, and good health.

But what I want to say today is that I'm thankful for those of you that are loving and giving and serving outside of our border.  I'm thankful you are willing.  I'm thankful you love others more than yourself.  I'm thankful for just the thought of you faithfully filling your place.  And even though you are not able to eat the turkey and trimmings with your loved ones, you are so very loved from afar.

Thankfulness and food are a lovely combination.  Today will be spent at a home with the Chairman's extended family.  They are mostly all Italians.  That means there will be a lot of food, a lot of stories, and a high decibel level...  

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  4. Way late here. Your post brought tears to my eyes. We had a special day- chicken instead of turkey with our dear friend here. :)
