Preparations for Thanksgiving

I'm about to light candles, put on music, get a glass of wine, and enjoy the evening with the kids doing Thanksgiving preparations.

I've not been. . . excited. . . about the traditions of Thanksgiving, even though my heart has been very thankful. The Lord changed my heart from stress to peaceful today. He gave me the energy and desire to do a "real" Thanksgiving and I went grocery shopping for all the fixings.

I just got off the phone with my Dad to get his special, secret tips for making a turkey (he was the one that always cooked our turkeys growing up) and had a wonderful visit.

Now the turkey is thawing in the pool and my heart and home are peaceful.
