Thanksgiving: Finally my blog is caught up!

I woke up this morning and it really didn’t feel like thanksgiving.

I was not rushing to the mirror to make sure I had not been pranked during the night, I was not waking up to the smell of my grammies fresh fried spuds, my family was not all gathered near the fire place having morning worship while the cold air swirled around outside, Lori was not trying to get me to drink some “pond water,” and I was not nestled up with my family at the ranch.

Thanksgiving will never be quite right with out all my family together, the anticipation of freshly baked pumpkin and apple pie, a yummy turkey dinner, and a taffy pull. Being away I realize how much I value all the little traditions and time with my family. You guys have made my life so full, but today I am still happy. I am so thankful just to have you all in my life and know that in a few months I will be able to see you all again.

I finished talking to my Dad, Mom, and sister right before I went to class and they inspired me to do something new. Today we talked about Thanksgiving and made videos on my photo booth so they could practice their English, they had so much fun. I realized in that moment, that yes Thanksgiving should be spent with the people you love, but I am so lucky just to have so many AMAZING people in my life, and even if I cannot see them face to face…they are with me in my heart. I love you all so much.

Eat LOTS of yummy food for me, and all my family wherever you are…don’t forget to say what you are thankful for: that is one of my favorite traditions. We all said what we were thankful for at my mothers worship last night. I love you all SO much. I am so thankful for all of you.
