Reading posts on Facebook and message boards it is abundantly clear that there is a large margin of people who do not enjoy spending time with their families for the holidays. Stories are written and advice given on how to get through the holidays with your in laws, your difficult mother, and your horrid siblings. So many people comment that they just wish they could spend the holidays alone or that they will have to drink heavily to get through this family time.
Last night as members from both sides of the family sat down to the table to eat it hit me once again how lucky I am. Not only do I love my family and look forward to the time I get to spend with them, but I could not have picked better in laws as well. We prayed together, we laughed together, we shared stories, and we ate delicious food together with full grateful hearts. Just the way Thanksgiving should be.
I hope your Thanksgiving was peaceful and warm, and filled with family love and fun and grateful hearts.
