Remember the hospital scare back in the Spring? Going in for an out-patient procedure and ending up in ICU? That was God that brought me through that. Remember the job that almost took me out? Yes, God brought me through that too, AND, blessed me with another one that I didn't see coming.In the midst of everything we go through, there are so many things to be thankful for, both big and small.
After the Thanksgiving Day Service, I got home just in time to meet part of my family. My cousin, whom I will refer to as "The Vegan" (he's not really vegan, but over the past 8 years he has fluctuated between vegan and vegetarianism that we never know what to prepare him) decided to ride down with his mom and sister for Thanksgiving. He decided like 1 AM on Thanksgiving Day so you know there was very little for him to eat.
We had our play arguments over which foods he would eat. He fought his sister over her cupcakes, which are technically vegetarian, but come on - not really healthy. lol
Then he made a attack plan on the macaroni (since he's back to eating cheese now). We told him there would be a fight to the end on that one too.
Meanwhile, his friend had fun playing dress up in my crocheted stash.
Finally, the rest of the family and a few friends arrived and this is basically what was served:
Loads of laughter, deep debates, requests for coffee, hot apple cider, and take out plates galore. It was a great day that I was happy to celebrate with my family and friends.
* I'm also thankful for a dish washer. :-)
