Early Giving Thanks Dinner
Yesterday I awoke with what seemed like the start of a winter cold, not a bit surprising with our first snow flurries in the air. I decided against going to church, opting instead to spend the day nursing my symptoms while hoping they would go away. This decision meant I would also miss out on the early Thanksgiving dinner at church too.
As luck and love would have it, I would be given good reason to give thanks anyway. I received a call from my friend (and boss) who had attended the dinner at Hope United Methodist Church . "I gathered you up some food and want to bring it to you," she said. Now, how awesome that was!
Jenny arrived with several plates of food for me -- turkey and all the trimmings. As you can see, plenty for dessert too, including the church's famed buckeye candy!
Yes, I shared a bit of turkey with my dog Valentino, and gave him the hug I could not give my friend Jenny, as she did not want to share my germs! And, I shed a few tears of gratitude as my friend drove away.
This is but a simple reminder for me that no matter life's weather, there's always a bit o' sunshine to be found. For that truth I give thanks.
