Thanksgiving thoughts

Hello friends!  I have to be the worst blogger in the world.  I can't seem to remember to post very regularly.  Real life intrudes on the perfect one I have pictured in my head.  You know, the one where you have the time and energy to keep your house immaculate, cook healthy meals 3 times a day, decorate beautifully for every holiday, make it to all your kids' school events and still have time to enjoy your favorite hobbies.  Yeah, there aren't enough hours in several days for me to accomplish all that!  But I can dream right?  That's why I am thankful for the holidays, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Now that William is in college, the holidays that let him come home for an extended time are especially precious.  He has been home this week and even though I worked the first part of the week, we all still have gotten to spend some quality time together.  We spent one evening singing as a family, something we have not had time to do much recently.  That may sound silly or weird to some people, but we are a family that sings together.  And we had a full quartet going because we had Isaac in there singing too.  And my heart swelled with love and pride for my babies.  They have come so far with their talents and they aren't afraid to use them.  Simply sitting in our living room with the PA up loud and singing ourselves hoarse was a great blessing to me.  Just one of too many to number I have been graced with.  I have taken the time to reflect on those blessings this week and I hope that you have too.  I used to sing a song that lists some of those blessings we take for granted.  I had to quit singing it because I couldn't sing it without crying.  The  chorus says "There's a roof up above me, I've a good place to sleep.  There's food on my table and shoes on my feet.  You gave me your love Lord and a fine family.  Thank you Lord for your blessings on me!"  When you stop to realize that much of the world cannot say the same thing, it is humbling to know just how blessed you are.  So as we all recover from a day of eating WAY too much, we need to drop our heads and say a heartfelt thank you to the Provider of all our blessings, both spiritual and material.  We all have too many to count.  May God continue to bless you and yours now and always.
