Gobble 'til You Wobble

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!

We've been MIA lately but it's only because life is getting much busier as we close in on the holidays. I pray you have an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and that you truly gobble 'til you wobble. And then take a nice, long nap.

The year 2009 has been one of ups and downs for our family but we truly have much for which to be thankful. Here's the short list:

  • Our fabulous Disney vacation
  • Our health
  • Our jobs
  • The Father
  • The Son
  • The Holy Spirit
  • The fact that my daughter and my stepdad were baptized within a week of each other during the summer
  • Our church family
  • The opportunity to give back to our community through volunteer work
  • A daughter who suffered a very unfortunate injury last month but who has amazed us with her courage and determination to get right back in the groove
  • That our pets are still alive (they've truly acted horribly lately and I'm sure they're thanking God for their lives today as well :-)
  • The chance to live in a free country
  • Multiple Thanksgiving meals!
  • Friends and family far and near who bless us richly, cry with us freely and support us no matter what

If you're reading this, know that I am thankful for you as well. And that we pray this entire holiday season will bring you nothing but joy.
