I decided not to cook on Thursday for a couple of different reasons. First of all, the Titans were playing at noon, and I certainly was not going to eat our Thanksgiving meal in front of the TV! Secondly, we made plans to head down to one of our homeless shelters/outreach centers and help serve the Thanksgiving meal there that afternoon. It was a wonderful opportunity to show the boys how much we have to be thankful for, and to give them a small chance to help serve and be a blessing to someone else. It was GREAT! Josiah was frustrated that we couldn't serve more people, so we'll have to go again another night.
Later that night, Beth & Anthony and their sweet kids came over for dinner and an evening of fellowship. How grateful we are for their friendship - I can't even begin to tell you. It was such a wonderful night of refreshment for David and I - and the kids had a ball together, as always. So it was a different kind of Thanksgiving - but one that I don't think we'll ever forget. We have SO much to be thankful for. Truly.
