Today is the day! I will spend my morning watching the parade and brining our turkey.
Then it's time for food prep.
Dinner is at 2:00.
The cowboys play at 4:00.
And finally we usually round out thanksgiving night with Home Alone on DVD.
Wednesday afternoon I showed my critical thinking class Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving and we had a chat about why we celebrate this holiday as a nation. And just what we should be thankful for.
I find it amazing that the Native Americans were willing to take the Pilgrims under their wing. Would I be willing to welcome random strangers from a foreign land into my home? Would I share all the food in my pantry? Would I give people I didn't know the clothes in my closet or the keys to my car?
Even in the darkest of days I am still God's child, I am still cared for, I am still loved and for that I AM THANKFUL.
