Thanksgiving Day BluesNorman 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.
Basting the Turkey
Joseph Christian Leyendecker
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.
