With a heart of thanksgiving,
It's Thanksgiving, and I'm so grateful for life.
I'm grateful that my daughter invited two friends to join us for Thanksgiving today. What a blessing to have friends around the table with us!
I have another friend who is having a difficult Thanksgiving, because her daughter passed away last week. I cannot imagine how she's getting through the day. I called her today to let her know I was thinking of her. I hope the call helped in some small way.
My daughter and I made our Thanksgiving lefse this morning. Lefse is a Norwegian flat bread made from potato dough rolled out thin, like a tortilla. It didn't turn out perfect. I hope I will remember my daughter's advice. She told me that I get too stressed out and take things too seriously. I'd have much more fun if I LAUGHED because it wasn't turning out perfect. I'd say she's a pretty smart lady!
Yes, I'm blessed this Thanksgiving. May you be blessed, too.
