Thanks and Giving

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! This is my favorite time of the year, and I look forward to consuming lots of yummy food on Thursday.

This year I decided to make another list of the things I am thankful for, so here goes:

* My family. I am so blissfully thankful for my family because I am fully aware that we may not always be together.

* God's mercy on us. He's carried us through the worst of times and not only given us the grace to get through it, but also the mercy to not take everything away from us. In other words, he let us keep Emma.

* St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

* True friends. Some of you I know "in person", and some of you I only know online, but I have many true friends and I am thankful for you.

* Stuffing. Yes, I love stuffing. I like "dressing", but I waaaaayyy prefer stuffing. And pumpkin pie. With Cool Whip.
What are you thankful this year?


  1. I am thankful for brave and faithful friends whose stories inspire me. I thought of you Katie, and Emma, and your family this morning while watching the Today show. Jenna Bush was interviewing here grandma, Barbara Bush, who related the story of their first child (the aunt Jenna never knew) who battled cancer many years ago, before there was much hope at all. George and Barbara took her to St. Jude. Jenna and her grandma visited St. Jude's during the interview.
    Thanks for the hope and faith you share.

    1. I saw the interview, Damon. It made me cry!
