... for very few leftovers. I like turkey, but not for days on end.
... the blending of families and friends is flawless. Part of it is due to the fact that there are some very nice personalities involved. But a bigger part is that there is an inner working that makes these aforementioned family and friends more than nice.
... our home can handle the crowd and that people want to come. I'm thankful the Chairman had wisdom to show me this house he peeked at six years ago. The wide-open spaces can handle extra tables and bodies and make it a dwelling place for others.
... a simple thing like good weather so that it was easy for travel.
... parents that relocated to our state so they can share in days like yesterday. We loved to travel out to the prairie, but this makes it all a bit easier.
... the Chairman and MYP pitch in and really make it easy to have others over.
... the Chairman and MYP left to go shopping and I'm alone for awhile today! With a dirty house. Actually, not too bad, but I'm glad to clean in the deafening quiet.
... the festivities aren't over! We need to go out to celebrate dad's birthday and see some more family.
... most of all I'm thankful I feel thankful. I can't imagine going through life without feeling indebted and grateful to others. It brings an inner peace that can't be explained.
See you on Monday!
