happy thanksgiving week!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. We always gather together in my parents' home (I'm talking ALL of us...it's quite a large group) and eat the most delicious food lovingly prepared by my grandmother and other family members. 

I also like that it makes us all stop and reflect on everything we are grateful for. It is so easy to forget how blessed we are. We get caught up in the daily grind of life. We get annoyed sitting in endless traffic or dealing with the 27468th tantrum of the day or watching the bills rack up and wondering how we'll pay them all. When you're caught in the thick of it sometimes you can barely breathe, much less be thankful. But I pray that this Thanksgiving you take some time to just sit. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Think about all the ways God has blessed you. Life may not be perfect, and maybe it never will be, but it sure is good. 

Share with us...what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Here's a shot from last Thanksgiving. Liam was so cute and little! And Isabel was swimming around in the womb. ;-)
