We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. My mother in law out did herself again this year with the turkey and taters and stuffing Jamie and Em had the greenbean casserole, Jeremy and Kathy brought tea and the most delicious mac and cheese I have ever tasted, I made sweet potato casserole and do believe I perfectd the recipe, and Christopher and Vika brought fruit whip. Unfortunately Josh couldn't make it, he sure did miss a great meal!
As much good food and fun as we had... we didn't take a single picture.... hence the woodstock picture!
One thing about being with my sons and daughter in laws, is every single one of them is funny... I mean the one liners, the way to tell a story, a simple episode if described right can have me rolling! It is a wondeful gift and one of the reasons I love having them all under one roof... It makes me smile.. and laugh... I am so proud of them all!
So, I am thankful in 2014 for God, the gift of Jesus, my salvation, The relationship I have with my husband and the little grey cat that showed up just when we needed her..
I am thankful for Jamie and Emily's new adventure wiht Jamie's position at Lowes and Emily with Scholastic
I am thankful for Jeremy and Kathy , this was Kathy's first Thanksgiving as my daughter, and of course we are thankful for the Bean who by God's grace will be with us next Thanksgiving.
I am thankful with all the turmoil in the world that Josh is out of law enforcement. We couldn't be more proud of the fact he was so good at what he did, but knowing he is at a desk every day does this Mama's heart good.
I am thankful for Christopher and Vika and how well the are doign in college and how mature they are aout planning for their wedding and life together. Next year Vika too will be my daughter ( although I consider her one now)
I am thankful for my mother in law who loves me unconditionally and is also my spiritual mother God blessed me! Of course my father in law whose practical advice I am always thanful for.
and of course my friends and family that I see daily, occasionally, online..... my life is rich and full.
give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thess 5:18
