Last year I was having Thanksgiving with my family in San Fransisco. This year Ryan and I have celebrated three times. We have a lot to be thankful for.
Thanksgiving #1 was celebrated with close friends and the Bible study crew. We enjoyed turkey with all the fixings and then Ryan took a break from teaching through the Bible to teach a study on the history of Thanksgiving. It was a good reminder of the amazing freedom we have to worship here in the USA.
This was Thanksgiving #2. We celebrated with our Southern California family. For this Thanksgiving, the kids had well-timed naps so that we could enjoy the amazing food and cousin/family/adult conversation. Once the kids woke up we celebrated some more! I’m so thankful for my wonderful family.
And finally Thanksgiving #3. The morning was spent relaxing and watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade, along with past Thanksgiving Friends episodes, while enjoying the smells of turkey roasting and stuffing in the oven. The afternoon was spent with friends. Playing games and watching football added to the festivities. It was a great low key Thanksgiving celebration.
I hope you all have counted your blessing this year and celebrated well with good food and good fellowship. Happy Thanksgiving!
