i have so much to be thankful for.
i have my true love, my little darlings, a cozy house & a vehicle that works.
all the necessities of life...
& plenty of the non essentials that make life so delicious...
But on Thanksgiving - i never fail to be thankful for my sisters.
We have made it a sort of tradition - in this season of our lives - to get together at Thanksgiving. We don't know how many more years we'll get like this - where we have all our little ones living under our roofs - able to get together with cousins, aunties & uncles & grandparents for a little music, a little turkey, a little playing - & our family's tradition - a little play.
Usually, we let Jessie (our middly sister) host. Not only is she the quintessential hostess - but her house is so perfectly suited for company, being big enough to host us all - with the added bonus of barns & bushes, bunnies, animals & all sorts of opportunities for outdoor exploration, bush tag & evening hot tubs.
But this year... they let me host. My mom & dad flew in & mom took me to Costco to fill my cupboards to bursting for the hoard of tiny hungry mouths :)
Our house was stretched at the seams for the few short hours that all 29 of us were here... & then the overlap ended & one sister's family left to make room for the other to bed down for the night.
i love Thanksgiving & i thank God for the gift of family.
