It seems as though I have been working towards this day for weeks now....maybe it's because I have, haha. I had a BIG list of things I needed to do before we take off tomorrow for New Mexico to spend Thanksgiving with Melody and her family. Their Christmas blanket is made...
|Love the colors in this one...|
|I thought the fabric was darling, and they are soo practical too!|
|I have such a good time picking out each family's ornaments...they are all different, so I will show the other family's later|
|Couldn't resist this one for Sam when I saw it as he is soo into Mickey right now..|
|Loved the colors|
|Tells the Christmas story really well.|
And then this year we decided to get one of those books where your voice is recorded reading it. This came out MUCH better than I had hoped for. It is read by both Grandpa and Grandma and I am hoping they ALL enjoy them. It was VERY fun recording this for some reason. Here is Sam's...

But what I REALLY wanted to blog about today was my reflections on this last year and how much I have to be grateful for. And there is just sooo much. I have been keeping a daily log on the side of this blog for the month of November, but it really just scratches the surface. I just soo feel the Lord has so blessed me that at times I feel a little overwhelmed. Everywhere we look, IN SPITE OF, the trials, sorrows, and troubles (and there have been many) the Lord's Hand is everywhere. In the beauty of nature, cherished family and friends, and His peace, protection, grace, and mercy. I want to wish everyone of you a wonderful Thanksgiving day, and may the Lord bless and keep you all!
Just wanted to thank you for all of your prayers for my niece Michelle and my sister and their family. They are all sooo grateful! Michelle is home now and recovering from her surgery and they are awaiting the appointment with the oncologist to learn about the next part of her treatment. Your continued prayers are appreciated more than you can imagine. I want to show you a picture of Michelle and little Jacob. His little face says it all.
|Such a happy boy!|
