Thankful may I ever be for everything that God bestows. Thankful for the joys and sorrows, for the blessings and the blows. Thankful for the wisdom gained through hardships and adversity. Thankful for the undertones as well as for the melody.
Thankful may I ever be for benefits both great and small — and never fail in gratitude for that divinest gift of all: the love of friends that I have known in times of failures and success. O may the first prayer of the day be always one of thankfulness.

Today my family will have Pillsbury rolls for breakfast! The kind that you buy in the tube from the egg section of the grocery store. It’s a small holiday tradition started in my growing up years that my husband loves. Several years ago we started eating them more often, but I vetoed that idea. It made the holiday breakfast less special; and they are loaded with carbs…
Then we are off to Thanksgiving Praise service at church from 9:00 – 10:00 am. This has always been one of my favorite services of the whole year. When I was little it was because it was the only service that got done in exactly an hour, but now I love the service itself. There will be testimonies, hymn singing, and Bible reading. Everyone will be in the auditorium; which should be pretty entertaining this year considering the large amount of small children we have in our church family right now.
We will eat our big meal at my in-laws. My husband’s uncle is bringing a chocolate cake from a bakery and I’m drooling already just thinking about it.
My husband is looking forward to watching football because it’s one of the rare times that he gets to. I’ll probably pass on that. Pass him the drink, pass him the leftover’s in a sandwich, pass him a piece of that scrumptious cake…
That’s our plans for the day. I pray that your plans turn out well. Take care, and may God bless.
