Blessed Thanksgiving to all

Today my house smells like bacon from breakfast this morning and now chocolate chip oatmeal cookies!  It's that time of year!  I love it!

This past Sunday Pastor Dave had a great message on thankfulness and if I had to name what I am most thankful for this year it would be --- we are home for another Thanksgiving!!!! 

Today my brother arrives from Florida!  My other two brothers live near my parents already.  We are only an hour away.

My son is about an hour away and my two daughters are right here in town.  That means my grandchildren are also right here in town. 

All of those are priceless blessings and we appreciate them even more than we did 6 years ago.  We know what it's like to NOT be with them during holidays and to be able to enjoy being with them for the second year in a row --- thank you Lord!

It is our prayer that you take a minute (or longer) and really think about ALL the things we have to be thankful for.

My 6 year old grandson's kindergarten teacher asked them to tell what they are thankful for.  His response?  "Hot girls!"   :)  You just have to laugh -- and pray for his parents -- he's only 6?????

We are thankful for all of you who continue to support us, to pray for us, to bless us, to love us and to understand the call God has placed on our lives! 

Our Thanksgiving wish is for God to return the blessings to you a hundred fold!!!!!!

Until next time . . . Happy Thanksgiving to You!                          Susan and Monty

Happy Thanksgiving to both of you! Tell Monty we haven't forgotten about the sleepover; just waiting for Carter to let us know when Terry won't have to work a Saturday morning :) Love you!
