Funny How Things Work Out...

November 27th, 2008 (10:27 pm)

I did not get to join my Familia last Sunday--when they celebrated
with their extended church family.
Put my nose out of joint, but I trudged through it begrudgingly anyway.

For my troubles...
They all decided to make the 3 hour drive to Austin for ACTUAL Thanksgiving!
It was just going to be a bit of a 'STONE SOUP' day of leftovers, but...
My Brother smoked a turkey, Mom made dressing and rolls, I made the HUGE pile
of mashed potatoes and veggies and home-made cranberry sauce and
Daniel Tiger brought the apple/cranberry pie from Whole Foods--WITH real whipped cream.


So in my tiny little efficiency apartment today my Mother and Father and Brother and
Sister-in-Law and Nephew and Best Friend...ate and laughed and ate and laughed
and played three rounds of cut throat Scrabble!!!

I was made wildly aware
of how very very much I have to be thankful for.

Hope you and yours had a wonderful Thursday as well.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

And I love the "Stone Soup" reference...I used to love that book when I was younger!

CONGRATS! I can't wait to meet it next week.

NEXT WEEK! YEAAAAAH! Will my arrival on Thursday pose a problem with your work schedule? I have friends in town who i can schedule a pickup with, hang out with them and then meet up later if need be.
