When all parties were well again, we resurfaced and hit the ground running. Thanksgiving was at our house this year, and mama had to learn how to roast up a turkey! I loaded up my two sous chefs and we hunted down a small turkey, kitchen twine, baster, and other necessities for our trial run! Besides wrestling around for a good 15 minutes, trying to "truss" the bird, the whole experience went relatively smooth! Yet another pleasant surprise!
Ordinary life or little surprises along the way...the beauty of this season is finding Thankfulness in every situation. Sometimes it takes me a lot longer to find gratitude in things like pink eye, but there really is a silver lining behind every cloud. Even if there wasn't, the GRACE alone that has been extended to us by our Savior is reason enough to wake up grateful every. single. day.
And if your wondering what the silver lining is...on those days you can't seem to get your head above the clouds...make mini pilgrim hats! But make sure your the guy at the end of the assembly line! :)
