I absolutely love Thanksgiving. It is such a great time to step back, relax, and to enjoy the wonderful life that we have! We always miss spending holidays with our families, but we are so lucky to have a great group of friends to join us in celebrating. One of our friends, Terra, planned out the whole event, and we are so grateful to her! Somehow, she got access to our church building so we had the whole place for our get together.
Terra had a great idea to have us each bring a food item that is traditional with our families. It made for a really good Thanksgiving menu. And it was fun to see how our friends celebrate their Thanksgiving. Not only was the table stuffed full of deliciousness, so were our stomachs. There were so many good things that we had to try a little bit of everything. We also got some great shots at our photobooth. Gobble, gobble, gobble.
In between setting up, eating, and cleaning up, the guys disappeared to play a little basketball in the gym. Their little competitive game was so fun to watch, especially because Kyle had pulled a hamstring earlier that day while playing Turkey Bowl football. For the love of the game, right?
I am so grateful to have friends who are so wonderful. I’m grateful for a family that loves unconditionally. I am grateful to be healthy, and to have an amazing job. I’m grateful for the roof over my head, a place to sleep, and a cupboard full of food. I’m so happy to be alive right now! And, that is why I love this holiday; Thanksgiving is a wonderful reminder that what we are all incredibly blessed.
