Happy "American" Thanksgiving
Today is the American Thanksgiving. We will do all the traditional things. This morning there were two pies baking in the oven. The potatoes were boiling away, ready to rice. A harvest squash was roasted with fresh rosemary, all ready to mix gently with the spring lettuce mix.
Meanwhile, the snow outside turns soggy under the steady drizzle of rain!
We are so thankful to live near family. But even as we dress and load up the vehicle to go spend the day with Sarah and her family, Nathan and his family, and the new Skovrinski family, we recall so many other Thanksgiving holidays. Many of these were spent (21) in Canada. Our celebration was much earlier in the year as we celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving in October. Sometimes we had family with us, and many times we were with our Canada "family" members for our community. Looking back even further, we enjoyed 9 years in Wisconsin, celebrating with family and friends. We have so much to be thankful for.
So, our short wish for each of you today is to give thanks with us. For friends, for family, for the richness of a wonderful meal and food each day on our table, and for the God of the universe that made a way for us to have a relationship with Him.
If you are reading this....then we are also so very thankful for you!
