Happy Thanksgiving!

Food makes us very happy in our house and despite the lingering cough and cold symptoms most of us have, we are very excited to share a holiday feast with the Lowry family tomorrow! Grateful people are happy people.  I recently heard  that and I believe that it is true.  This year we are thankful for our home, cool sunny days, giggles and squeals, strong and healthy bodies, our trampoline, great friends, caring and supportive family near and far, prayer,  a loving Heavenly Father who is aware of our needs and struggles, good doctors, the goodness in the world, delicious food, cheap gas, monster trucks, blankets, and cuddling time.  I could go on.  Truly we are so blessed to have to so much!  May you feel thankful this Thanksgiving!
