Time to be Thankful

We had our staff "Pilgrims and Indians" Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and it included all of my Thanksgiving favorites: greenbean casserole, deviled eggs, turkey, stuffing, rolls, and OF COURSE sweet potato casserole (which I made because marshmellows are the ONLY topping, and people try to mess it up all the time).  The only thing missing was family and football haha, but I was really glad to still get to celebrate with a bunch of new friends who are also away from their families.  I had intentions of taking pictures of all the goodies for this blog, however I got too caught up with all the socializing and completely forgot, so just take my word for it.

A Thanksgiving blog would not be complete with out my listing off what I am thankful for, so here it goes: my family who supports me in whatever I do, a job in a time where so many are without, friends that constantly offer me encouragement, my school, my students who bring smiles to my face daily, my health, my freedom to profess my faith openly, getting to see the world, and saving the best for last, my continually growing relationship with God.

I hope everybody enjoys the holiday, the good food, and all the time spent with friends and family.  Don't forget to take a minute and think about how blessed you are.  Maybe even write your own "thankful" list in the comment section :)


  1. Green Bean Casserole and Sweet Potato Casserole..... yummy!! I am so glad you and your new friends were able to celebrate "Pilgrims and Indians", some of the sweetest times will be when you make those around you be the "family". We will miss you in Abbeville. Holding off on the Punt Pass Kick or Wuffle Ball game until you can be there.
    My Thankful list would include as you said our family being so close; my health; mine and BH new jobs. I am also very thankful for your journey and for God to reveal Himself to you. I am most thankful for answered prayers.
    Love you and love reading about your adventures! Aunt Linda
