We have a lot to be thankful for, but a very full and busy weekend that might not let us fully appreciate it all, so i'ma make a list.
1. Even though we are all growing up and our family is expanding, I still get to see most of my extended family at some point this week.
2. My brother is coming home, even though he will have to wear a pestilence mask cause he be sicky.
3. My cousin and his son in Tennesee are recovering from their bout of H1N1 and double pneumonia.
4. My Pa has his job back, at least for a few months, and is super stoked about going to work every day.
5. My mom is settling in to her new house and making it her own. most of the boxes are unpacked.
6. I have a job that lets me cuddle one of my favorite little people every day, and a plan for the future that involves more school and infinite possibilities. And a week off next week!
7. This Thanksgiving will be even more special because the little person will be baptised tomorrow morning .
I'll end with my father's grace:
Lord, bless this food from your bounty,
Help us to be always mindful of the needs of others,
And look after those who cannot be with us tonight,
