Happy Thanksgiving!

Can you believe it is Thanksgiving week?! As I look back on the year there are times that seemed to just drag on. It was a tough year. At the same time, it is hard to believe that we are already celebrating Thanksgiving again.

I have so much to be thankful for: a husband who loves me even when I am unlovable, three beautiful children, God's nature all around me, health.... I really could come up with quite a list. God is good.

I am so thankful for this adorable turkey. My Sweet Girl made this at school. If you know her, you know that her hands are in almost constant motion (see photo below). I'm sure it was not an easy task for her teacher and aides to get this project done. I love it!

Another thing to be thankful for is that her legs are getting stronger. Yes, the porch post is providing some balance behind her, but otherwise she is standing on her own. There was a day when we didn't know if she would ever bear weight on her legs. Now we believe that she will walk one day. God is so good!

This will probably be my last post for the week. Tomorrow we are heading to Branson to celebrate Thanksgiving with my inlaws. It will be fun to get away for a few days. I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving!

{"All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God." 2 Corinthians 4:15}
