A time to go around the table and express your proverbial wisdom by trying to come up with an original answer to "what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving!"
Each year, I am overwhelmingly blessed but this Thanksgiving was different. This Thanksgiving, my heart felt like it would burst from happiness. Looking around the table at lunch, I silently lifted up such a grateful prayer for those who were surrounding me! My Gigi is alive, kicking and still sassy at 88 after being in a major car accident which left her in the hospital for a month! My parents grow more in love with each other every year! I am blessed with a hilarious and fun-loving brother who makes every situation he is in better because of his presence! And then there is Nate. . . Words cannot express my thankfulness to the Lord for placing him in my life! We were missing someone this Thanksgiving, but I was grateful for the fact that Parker was not with us. He got to spend quality time with his girlfriend, Emily's, family which was well worth his absence at our table! One more thing to be thankful for. . . Emily! I could not have dreamed up someone more perfect for Parker! Emily challenges him, encourages him, has childlike faith and unwavering character. All in all, my cup runneth over. . .
