I don't have pictures to show you everyone, but there is one of me hugging my nephew, and one of me sitting next to my youngest son [who walked me, then his youngest sister down the aisle]. My oldest son and only daughter-in-law in NY were unable to come to the wedding, but the church recorded it so that those who couldn't come [including the groom's brother and family who live in Cambodia] could watch on line. [my oldest son recently sent pictures of my grandsons ages seven and five so I included pictures of them for you to see] My niece and two of her daughters flew in from Nebraska to be with us, too!
On Thanksgiving Day my youngest daughter and her husband were on their honeymoon, my sisters and their families had all flown home. So before my oldest son-in-law left for work [swing shift] we gathered around the table and had spaghetti [made with ground turkey and bottled tomato sauce]. My oldest daughter asked God's blessing on the food. She then asked each one of us to list something for which we were thankful. [Mommy, Daddy, toys, home, work and family were among those things mentioned]
Thanksgiving evening my oldest daughter along with her two daughters made two batches of gingerbread cookie dough [one with and one without gluten]. Then on Friday the girls and I made a paper chain for our Christmas tree. I drank some yummy tea and we all ate lots of gingerbread cookies while it poured rain outside; and I worked on crocheting a snowflake!
As I looked at the pictures for this post I cried and smiled and felt sooooo grateful to God for such precious people, [and Shelby Dog] who have been lovingly present for me; and I am grateful for each of you who take the time to view One Saylor's Log and encourage me with your loving comments.
Are you gathering gratitude? I hope so!
