A week of Gratitude!

I have a crazy/busy, super-fun week planned...
so I've decided not to blog for 7*ish days.

I shall return next week w/ millions of pictures, & plenty of blog material from our holiday festivities that = Eric's arrival home, turkey-trot endeavors & massive food consumption slash inevitable weight gain.

[Be safe, eat lots, watch football, and give thanks.]

I am so {extremely} grateful for all the Lord has blessed me with.

I acknowledge His hand in all that I have.

I'm sitting in a business meeting and read your post. I got tears in my eyes when I read what you were thankful for. Several years ago, your mother hung a sign in our kitchen that said some thing like, "the greatest that can come to parents is to know their children love the Lord."

True gratitude may be the most powerful evidence of such love. You have given us great joy today!
