sunday thoughts

day twenty
i am thankful for sundays
and family time

my youngest daughter 
reminded me yesterday 
when, i was moaning 
about how none of our girls 
will be here for thanksgiving,
how lucky i am 
that every sunday
at least one of the girls 
and family are here 
after church to visit 
and eat!

she said, "not many families
get to do that anymore"...
and she was right!

thanksgiving isn't about 
a certain day on the calendar,
it is about being together as a family.

all gathering together
over food & laughter.

so today 
is our 'thanksgiving'
we will be having the full meal deal
here after church...

and i am

so very thankful.

for my family-

for my life!

I know all about missing my Big Kids on the holidays. We have spent many holidays apart. :(

So glad you all get dinner together today.

Hope your week is BLESSED.
