Kids table is ready - check. Adults table is set - check. The tables are set. The fridge is full and it's the calm before the storm. Now is the time to sit and be thankful. Half the family is coming tomorrow. Both of our moms are with us another year and we are so thankful. Our girls and their families are with us and we are so thankful. Some of our siblings will be here and some won't. And of course our Marine is away. Very far away. But we are thankful. We are always thankful. We are thankful he is serving and we are thankful he will be home next year. God has given us so much to be thankful for and we see it in the faces of our family and friends near and far. We see it in the day to day routines in our lives. We are thankful for each other. God has given me a wonderful spouse to share my life with. Today we say thanks for what we see as the good and bad in our lives that help us to be what we have become.
