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 :)
