Thanksgiving 08

I can't believe its over...

Today is Thanksgiving and as I said earlier in the week this is one of my favorite holidays. Today on facebook I put on my status-Debbie is thankful for so much. Jesus, family, friends and my church. God has blessed me and I am humbled by His generosity.

My! Oh my! Am I ever humbled by His generosity. I can't believe that God has let me have so many things to be thankful for this year. Just to think that we had all of this food and so many had none. I found myself several times today getting choked up while I was looking around the room at my family. Even with all of our quirks we are so lucky. Every now and then today it got so loud you couldn't hear yourself think but I couldn't help but smile. Thank God we have so much to talk about and like to share with each other. Just thinking about it right now I get teary eyed. If the girls were here with me they would say "Mom you're being silly" so I am going to move on and show you some great memories we saved in our minds today. These memories will be brought up next year or ten years from now and we will smile, probably get so loud we can't think or laugh till we cry...I'll probably cry.

The morning started off with Lucy getting a bath. This is Granny Jan's new puppy and she had to look and smell good to meet the family.

There was plenty of good desserts. Cherry pie, chocolate pie, chocolate pecan pie, oreo cookie pie and three pumpkin pies. Shelby made the oreo cookie pie and the pumpkin pies. And they were great! Kacey helped us with a little bit of everything. She has turned into a good little cook.

Finally a good pic of me and Kenny!
The traditional pulling of the wishbone. Kacey won and here she is making her wish and Shelby is pouting. There is always next year Shelby!

This year Thanksgiving was so wonderful I just can't believe that it is over. In the coming year I am going to try my best to soak up the blessings and be more thankful throughout the year not just on one day. Wouldn't it be great if we had this feeling all year...Wow! How awesome would that be? I know I couldn't eat like this everyday (I would look like the broad side of a barn) but I should be able to thank God for all the special blessings that he gives me daily.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever. Psalm 136:1
