Last weekend our family gathered together to celebrate our son-in-law’s 30th birthday. Matt (far-left) is also the daddy of our first grand-child due in late April (not that we’re excited or anything like that!) We had a slumber party for all 9 of us at Matt and Anne’s little apartment Saturday night and made many memories doing so!

Tomorrow I get the pleasure of hosting Thanksgiving for 21 of us. Most of our family lives in Indianapolis so usually we travel for the holidays, but this year they decided they’d rather travel than host. I’m fine with that and I’ve got my turkey thawing in the fridge!

I want you to know that I am thankful for you, my online friends, today. You encourage me, inspire me, and make my life richer. I only hope I am able to give to you a portion of what you give to me.

God has really been working in our family this year in many different ways. Some of those I’ve been able to share with you along the way and some I look forward to sharing with you in the coming months as God brings about more clarity. But even in the midst of hard and challenging times, there is much to be grateful for.

So how does your family celebrate Thanksgiving? Can you share a tradition or two? What is your favorite Thanksgiving food? Anything special that you’re grateful for this year? I’d love to hear your heart!
