With turkey (roasted as only my mother can) and all the traditional trimmings we gathered around the table Thursday with a few dear friends and celebrated God’s many good gifts. I am so grateful today . . .
for our wonderful, spunky little Harriet.
for our bright and light little Norah.
for my husband Alex, faithful and true, my best friend and the best partner imaginable.
for my loving mother, who crossed an ocean to help us, and my dad, who encouraged her to come.
for all our dear family and friends far and near.
and for the Lord Jesus, who gives us hope and life and joy and gives all these other blessings their meaning.
