this day...

Thanksgiving Day Blues
Norman Rockwell
November 28, 1942  Saturday Evening Post Cover

this is what i would look like if i had to make thanksgiving dinner, only my face wouldn't be quite so jovial.  and i would probably be screaming obscenities.   

this day i am thankful for lovely inlaws who will allow us to invade their home, turn it upside down, and cook for us while we are there.

i love this picture.  look at this sweet little boy waiting by his mama, watching the turkey bake.  asher always likes to stay close to me while i cook.  and he loves to wait by the oven (mostly because i think he likes the adorable baby looking back at him)

this day i am thankful for my own sweet boy who challenges me and blesses me every single day.

i am thankful for my family, and the wonderfully strong women that i am surrounded by, and encouraged through that are found there. 

this day i am thankful for getting to spend 2 days with my sweet cousin jennifer, and her two beautiful girls before the stomach flu robbed me of my last day with her.  i love you jen, i am so proud of who you have become.

i am thankful for this life.  the chance to live another day.  to live in a country far more blessed than most.  i am thankful for a day where i will be allowed to sit around a table with the ones i love in front of a bountiful feast and visit and laugh and love and give thanks.  i am thankful that i live where i can worship, praise, be thankful, to a God who knows and understands my heart. 

i am thankful for every day past.  i am thankful for this day.  i am thankful there will another. 

on this day, i am thankful.  on this day i give praise.
