A day for thanks

Tomorrow is a big day. For the first time, my husband and I are hosting Thanksgiving dinner. (I've hosted many a Canadian Thanksgiving, but they were potlucks—I only had to provide the turkey, fixings, and beverages.)

It will be a small affair, with six adults and two little children. And others are bringing bread and dessert. Nonetheless, it's been fun to plan and prepare for a traditional dinner this year (although it may get less fun Thursday when I am fighting with the not-completely-thawed turkey and worrying over a new recipe for sweet potato casserole and dusting at the last minute).

It also brings to mind plenty of blessings:
  • Salvation and grace through Jesus Christ
  • My family, including my fabulous husband and our precious little one, due next May
  • Extended family (including a wondrous, recent transformation of one family member)
  • Friends
  • Plentiful food and warm home
  • Hugs
  • Music
  • Smiles
  • Oh, and did I mention the baby?

Have a splendid Thanksgiving Day, whether you're feasting or hosting or both!
