Thanksgiving Rocks!

Well, Happy Thanksgiving everybody! We’re celebrating with a pretty big group–almost 30 at my SGC’s house. (That’s sister-girlfriend-cousin). We’ll be doin’ the traditional meal wearing our matching Paula Deen aprons. I love Thanksgiving ’cause it’s all about the food. (Also my SGC is actually Daryl’s cousin, but I love her so much that I claim her as my very own).

Lots to be thankful for this year: Big D’s arthritis pain is completely gone thanks to his new meds. Praise God! I got my Daryl back! InterVarsity called on Friday and the book is in! So excited about that. They mailed mine on Friday so it should get here this week. Yippee!

Our daughter-in-law Jamie is expecting baby #3! What joy a new life is. And our daughter and her husband are adding to their family as well. A niece is coming to live with them and so we’re very excited about our family growing. More to love.

IICS had a wonderful year financially–one of our best even in this crazy economy. All I can say is God answered prayer. It’s the only explanation. He is faithful.

This year I reconnected with my extended family (okay, some for the first time) and found precious jewels in each one of them. What a blessing to have such amazing kinfolk! I’m thrilled. I love these people like crazy.

Also through FB I was able to reconnect with my college roommates. Most awesome girls that I love so much and have missed terribly. What a blessing.

I’m always thankful for my sister who is a Marathon runner when it comes to her faithwalk. She and her family are a lifeline to me.

I’m also very thankful that I was able to go an entire year and not have an operation. Last year I had two. So this is great news.

Please know how thankful I am for those of you who have been so kind to read this blog. Your generous comments and words of affirmation have meant so much to me. The blog has been a very unexpected joy and an unusual way for me to express myself…an outlet that has provided me with great opportunities to get things off my chest, to reflect on God’s goodness, to remind myself of lessons learned that are still relevant for my life today. You reading the blog has been icing on the cake for me. Thanks guys! And I hope and pray y’all have a great Thanksgiving! May it be your best one ever. Peace.

Teri, I know you’re the “world traveler”. I just got back from an 18 day Trans-Atlantic trip to Europe. I had an Adventure & loved every minute. You know I’m a retired social-studies teacher. Fred didn’t go & I went with friends, I could really travel by myself. I was “all over” that ship & go to meet a lot of people. Look at my facebook for the pictures. Janelle Hinkle Coyle
