Thanksgiving day was a wonderful day. My house was full of people. There were children running everywhere the game was on it was just a fun time for all. Later in the day we had an opportunity to share what we are thankful for. I am thankful for my husband who is an excellent provider and my best friend. I am thankful for my boys that keep me in constant prayer for direction on how best to shepherd their hearts. There is not a day that passes where I am not filled with awe, joy and laughter at the things that are said and done in our home. I am thankful for my mother who is always close by to offer a helping hand. In addition I am grateful for friends and family far and near. My blessings are too many to count. Thank you Lord for your grace and mercies. Your hand working in my life is very evident and I thank you.
Today I will be planning for our upcoming week of school and running a few errands. Unfortunately we did not hit the Black Friday jackpot like we did last year. Many of the stores opened up at 12 am and so there were more people out shopping, which meant longer lines and less of the door busters. Such a bummer but hopefully we will still find some great deals on the things we have on our list. In the mean time I am enjoying an interesting book Growing Up Bin Laden by Najwa Bin Laden, Omar Bin Laden and Jean Sasson. The book is a non fiction book and gives insight into the life of Osama Bin Laden from his first wife Najwa and his fourth son Omar. Did I mention I am savoring a piece of pumpkin pie with a dollop of cool whip. Yum! Hopefully you are enjoying this holiday with family and friends.
