Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I asked each member of our family to share a few things they are thankful for, and this is what they said.
Russ: snow plows that clear the highway and a tractor for plowing our driveway, peaceful mornings, coffee with cream
Lisa: coffee and conversation with friends, Russ, the view from my kitchen, Jesus, flannel sheets
Hannah: new friends and old friends, a church that preaches the gospel to me every week, the occasional chance to run bridges over the Mississippi River, the incredible experience of learning to be a surgeon
Mimi: unseasonably mild weather, coworkers who make Monday mornings great, and a husband who makes me laugh every day
Andrew: hot apple cider mixed with caramel, my awesome and humongous family, fuzzy kittens, my wife’s cooking
Noah: open doors, opportunities
Samuel: alarm clocks, study groups, warm blankets
Isaiah: fresh mop heads at work, sweet Seattle rain, public transportation, the guitar Noah loaned me
Ladybug: knitting projects, good books, the opportunity to meet new friends at school
Bee: music, family, friends
Dimples: school, spicy food, sports
Sunshine: amazing friends, our house, food to eat, celebrating Thanksgiving, and for God – I could go on a long time.
Eby: God, Thanksgiving and yummy food, Jesus for dying on the cross and forgiving our sins
Little Man: spaghetti and meatballs, our house, my life
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours.
