An Abundance of Blessings and a Potluck Dinner
Okay, it’s Tuesday again and time to give thanks for something on Gratituesday.
Let’s see, I’m thankful Abby forgot and left her Halloween bag full of candy here for Nana to pilfer through. So far I have had two bite size Snickers (shhhh, don’t tell).
I’m thankful that we don’t have to go to school today because it’s election day and I can sleep in.
No, really, all kidding aside, I am very thankful that I live in a country where I can go vote without fear. I strongly believe that every American should vote, even if it rains, sleets or snows on election day. Even when I am not thrilled with my choices (and that happens sometimes) I still vote because it’s a privilege that I don’t take lightly.
Every fifth Sunday we have a potluck dinner at our church and so this past Sunday was our day to dine. I remembered to take my camera because I wanted to show you who is always at the front of the line.
We have lots of good cooks and lots of hungry teenagers and I am so thankful for them both!
It was a wonderful meal and a great way to celebrate the end of October with Christian friends and family. I can’t believe it’s November already, can you?
Speaking of November, today is my brother Robert’s birthday. He’s the best gift my parents ever gave me and I love him dearly. Happy Birthday, Robert!
I give thanks for such an abundance of blessings!
