I'm not supposed to be typing too much as my shoulders, neck, and clavicle are still healing (and I'm soooo impatient!!! I have tons of blog posts for all 3 blogs just aching to get out!!), but I had to say a quick and official "Happy Thanksgiving" to everyone. :) I pray that you all share a wonderful day with friends and family, remembering God's blessings.
By the way, lest you all think I'm mortally wounded or something, my clavicle is pretty much back to normal, but I still have a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders, so I'm just supposed to take it easy for a while. Hopefully I'll be back to normal by next week! :)
And Alisa, I haven't forgotten your comment. Once I'm able to type for longer periods of time, I'd like to devote a post to some of your questions. So be on the lookout for that! :)
I'll be out of town tomorrow, so your comments might not be posted right away, but I'll have time to check them sometime Friday. Talk to you then!
P.S. I mentioned this in a post last year, but a great book that our family really enjoys this time of year is "Thanksgiving: A Time to Remember" by Barbara Rainey. It has the story of the first Thanksgiving, places for your family to record what they're thankful for, and even a CD of instrumental hymns appropriate for the holiday. I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a way to make Thanksgiving more significant and not so overshadowed by Christmas.
