We really enjoyed our Thanksgiving Day. It was a day that I reflected on my family. This is the first year since I've been back home that I did not go anywhere. I was determined to stay home with my husband, my kids, and our dinner. Raiyawna, unfortunately for me, was parading the streets of New York City having the time of her life, and I was feeling like a sheep who'd lost her lamb.
As I took inventory of my children, I realized that they are truly becoming young adults and there is nothing that I can do to stop that. I said a prayer of this sort, "Lord I thank you for my family and although Raiyawna could not be with us, I thank you for allowing Rasco to be a part of this family and this dinner." One day, I will probably be sitting at he and Dob's table thanking God that they allowed me a chance to visit with them. Life is so rewarding when we look at the simplest things that God has blessed us with. When I say simplest, I don't mean our children. I mean tables, dinners, fellowship, knowing how to cook, and taste buds. When you really take the time to think about, there are so many things you can be grateful for.
Well, I just felt like sharing a piece of my heart today and to take the opportunity to remind you to be grateful for the things that God has done; both great and small.
