I had great intentions of writing out a list of things I’m thankful for this year. It’s so easy to just cruise on past Thanksgiving and jump right into Christmas. Eat a little turkey, have a glass of wine and some pumpkin pie, and then we’re decking the halls and riding in a one-horse open sleigh. Once again, I find that’s what I’m tempted to do.
But last night when I sat down to watch the season finale of Dancing With The Stars, I caught the tail end of the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. And I couldn’t help but be struck by the sacrifices our forefathers made to bring us to this land and how much we have to be thankful for. So although I didn’t get a list written out like I’d hoped, I want to say that I am so very thankful for my family, our health, our home, and our country that allows us to worship freely.
And because Thanksgiving just isn’t complete without pilgrims and Indians, I have to share a few pictures I took yesterday and today when I visited my daughters’ school classes. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to be at my son’s party.
One Little Indian…
And a pilgrim…
Both classes enjoyed a “feast,” and my kindergartener participated in a little show about the first Thanksgiving. High comedy, I’m telling ya.
Tonight we took the two older kids and went to see a Panto of Cinderella at the People’s Light Theater in Malvern. If you’re local, this is a great show. I highly recommend it. We’re looking forward to a nice liesurely breakfast in the morning and then a fun family gathering in the afternoon. I hope you and yours have a delightful Thanksgiving celebration!
