"Those early Pilgrims were thankful for what had happened to them, and we should be thankful, too."

"It seems Thanksgiving Day is upon us."

This year, I'm ever so thankful for
a husband who finds ways to make his wife laugh every day
sisters who offer to be surrogates and give cards with little baby feet
brothers who accept their older sister's advice, even if unsolicited
moms who are always ready with hugs and kisses and candied yams
parents in law who do things like walk to the security gate to greet a late-arriving night flight
brothers in law who let you invite yourself to T-day dinner when you just don't have it in you
dogs who behave at the groomer
a good job close to home
a home near a beautiful mountain
but mostly
a loving, kind, patient, very-present Heavenly Father
an ever-teaching Comforter
an approaching season in which to get to know my Savior better

[Title quote is from "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving"]
