This morning the girls and some friends met at a local church to help fill food baskets for people in need this holiday. After that, we ran a few errands and then headed home to make a few check marks on our pre-Thanksgiving chore list. We ate lunch then headed to another friend's house where some of our home school teens gather weekly to view a dvd series on apologetics, then back home again to attack that list. At 6:00 people began showing up for dinner and Monday night prayer. It's 10:30 now. Everyone left about 45 minutes ago and the dishes are done.
Today I am thankful for my daughters, for friends, for food, for prayer. And I'm thankful for a holiday specifically designated for the giving of thanks.
