The acient Roman philospher Horace admonished,
"Whatever hour God has blessed you with, take it with grateful hand, nor postpone your joys from year to year, so that whatever place you have been, you may say that you have lived happliy."

Today I am grateful (with a touch of home sick) for...
New friends that welcomed us into their home for dinner.
The feeling of hope that this will begin to feel normal.
The love of my husband and two sweet boys.
For the life I have been given and the chances I have to live.
For the technology that makes the distance between seem shorter.
I'm grateful for those who have come into my life and made a difference.
All that I have been blessed with, because the Lord has been so generous to us.
Our family this summer at the farm.
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We did. Complete with turkey and pumpkin pie. We had dinner with several families on camp at a sweet couples home who were up to the challenge of hosting 15 adults and a whole lot of kids! Although we entered their home as strangers, we left as friends. I have never felt so welcome and today I needed that and I am grateful for it.
