Thanksgiving Again

It snowed today. I woke up to see huge, fat flakes meandering their way down. This lasted for two or three hours before it promptly melted. No winter wonderland for exploring just yet.

In a few hours, it will be Thanksgiving. There aren't really many songs for this holiday, except the few designed for elementary students. Why? Because it's hard to sell products on a day when we are to be thankful for what we have. Why else does Christmas music invade our homes earlier and earlier? Anyway, it has been a while since my last list. I am a blessed child of God, and I will not turn a blind eye to the blessings he bestows upon me.

  1. Amazing parents who have raised me in Christ's ways and who love me dearly
  2. Being near my big sister after a month of her absence
  3. Being able to talk to my sister with nothing held back, just like when we were little, despite the little time we are able to spend together these days
  4. Staying up late with my sister last night
  5. My close friend Christian and his amazing taste in music
  6. The music Christian gave me on a flash drive that made my day last week
  7. My Lizzy kitten (Lil-Bit) who curls up with me every night, sometimes even under the covers
  8. My church family
  9. Being told by one of my church members that when she looks at me, she sees my great grandma (who was an extraordinary christian woman)
  10. Big brothers who treat me like their own blood
  11. My visit with Ace and Kirito yesterday
  12. The christian webcomic From Nothing
  13. Hugs
  14. Music
  15. Books
  16. Naps
  17. Art
  18. Chocolate
  19. More chocolate

Tomorrow, I will visit with family and celebrate the many, many blessings my Lord has showered on me and mine, but in the following days, I won't forget my blessings, and I will continue to try my best to be a blessing to others and show them the love of the King through me.

Happy Thanksgiving, and have safe travels.

Letter to Green Bean Casserole

Dear Green Bean Casserole,

It was a pleasant surprise to be able to renew our acquaintance at the church dinner. As of late, we have been quite out of touch, which is unforgivable on my part. Indeed, I had forgotten how thoroughly I enjoy your good company. It was a pity that you were unable to extend your stay more than a few minutes. We did used to be such good friends.

Part of my purpose in writing you is to extend an invitation to Thanksgiving dinner with my family. You would be most welcome to join us, and my sister would be exceptionally pleased to see you again as well. I will personally ensure that there are enough plates. Our mutual friend Turkey has already told me that his attendance is assured, and Stuffing is eager to hear from you. I do so hope you will come.

Hope to eat see you soon,
