"We thank God for our homes and our food and our safety in a new land. We thank God for the opportunity to create a new world for freedom and justice."I love Peanuts cartoons. Besides just being fun and bringing back happy memories of childhood, they are full of little bits of wisdom.
I love Thanksgiving. I love the wonderful food. I love reflecting on my blessings. I love spending the day with my family and friends. I love the smell of pumpkin pie and turkey and sweet potatoes. I love setting a pretty table with our best china and fancy stemware.
I spent all day yesterday and this morning in the kitchen making preparations and listening to my favorite Mormon Tabernacle Choir CD.
Tonight I relaxed with my boys. We watched "Elf" and played with our new Little People Nativity set.
Some of the things people at our table were thankful for:
- Food. Mom's good food. And Dad's.
- BYU football, basketball, rugby and cross country
- Funny things that Danny says
- Sweet Daniel and Bono Baby (Kitty's and Dan's cute little dog)
- Dear friends and family
- Going to church
- David, Seth, Joel, Nate and Danny. Kitty and Dan.
I am thankful for Thanksgiving and the opportunity to reflect on my blessings and give special thanks to my Father in Heaven.
