So, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving in a very remote region of the North Carolina mountains with my sister’s family and my parents. Here are a few pictures highlighting the weekend, thanks to my sister’s photography skills (hint: click on this post to see all the pictures). We have so much to be thankful for.
Along those lines, I finished Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts, recently. It took me a very long time, not because I didn’t enjoy it, but because it was so heavy. Her reflections were like a thousand arrows-to-the-heart, every chapter took me days to digest, and I only felt like I could really absorb its content when I had a quiet house where I could reflect, and I don’t come by a quiet house very often. So, I’m prayerfully considering taking her challenge and starting my list of 1,000 things I’m thankful for, maybe I shouldn’t need to pray about that, but I guess that just shows how hard my heart is. A Thanksgiving full of fun, family and food was a good reminder of how blessed I am.
