Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
Every year we travel about 30 minutes east to my in-laws for a delicious Thanksgiving meal. We have a tradition in which we all share what we are most thankful for [usually in the past year]. Last year we were fresh "off the heels" of two clogged sinks....so, I stammered out at the table, "I'm thankful for plumbers and sinks that aren't clogged". Yeah. I'm real deep like that.
This year I'm planning to say that I'm thankful for the health that the Lord has blessed our family with this year. I am humbled by the blessings that are continually showered on us every day, every week, month, and year after year. I am grateful for the safety and health of my children. I am thankful that our material needs are met, and for the love that lives in this house. Mostly, though, I'm thankful for God's work in our lives and His very obvious presence in our hearts.
That's about as emotional as I get, folks. And, now, back to my practical side.
I am almost always the "dessert person" - which is funny, because I don't really like dessert - but, thankfully, everyone else does.
This year, we will be enjoying a chocolate tart, an apple pie, and a pumpkin pie. (recipes are highlighted, feel free to click away)
