Countdown to Thanksgiving

Though I may not be ready for Christmas, I am so excited for Thanksgiving.  In a matter of a week, I will be back at home in Kansas, surrounded by loving family, eating good food, and enjoying the simplicity of being.  As I have talked about Thanksgiving with various family members, the energy is overwhelming.  Even grandpa, the one who doesn’t like to talk on the phone much, talked for a whole three minutes about how excited he was for Thanksgiving.

One thing I always leave Thanksgiving with is the beauty of my family.  We aren’t perfect, we all have odd quirks, but yet we all get along.  I have heard of many families who dread the holidays because they simply can’t get along.  This is so hard for me to fathom.  I am so blessed!

I am looking forward to starting some new traditions this year, possibly including running a 5K with Dad, Mom, Matt, and whoever else wants to on Thanksgiving day!

Try something new this holiday season!  You might be pleasantly surprised at the results!

  1. Joy! I am so excited for Thanksgiving too! I can’t wait! Along with school break, we might spend out Thanksgiving in the Plaza in Kansas City helping to serve dinner at a homeless shelter. I am hoping we get to do that! I am really looking forward to it!
