I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and enjoys spending time with family and friends. Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in the madness of making the food, catching all the football games, and losing sleep over Black Friday deals. But I hope we can all take the time to reflect on our blessings and the One who blesses us so richly with His love.
I am thankful for my husband, Mary Ella, the sweet heartbeat of my unborn child (which I was able to hear last week!), my family, my house, my job, my friends who are wonderful, my church and my pastor, my small group, my health, my country, and my freedom. But most of all for Jesus. Thank you God for these gifts!
Today I am in charge of the turkey bird. I've had this bird in my fridge for the past 2 days attempting to thaw his little wings out and finally had to put him in a water bath this morning so he'd unfreeze! He was being a little stubborn. I've never made a turkey before - never attempted anything like this - so here's hoping for a juicy, tender, golden brown and crispy-skinned turkey. Because if he's not juicy, tender, golden brown and crispy-skinned around 5pm, I'll be slightly panicked and my family will be without protein. And I'll go back and read the first 2 paragraphs of this post and remember that it's not the end of the world.
Happy Turkey Day!
