home. There were 19 of us sitting around a beautiful table with the most delicious food ever.
There was a big turkey which had been cooked at our house(boy, does it smell good here. I might
sleepwalk tonight to make myself a turkey sandwich except there is no turkey), mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and apples, brussel sprouts, rolls. cranberry jello salad, stuffing, gravy and pies.
As usual, we ate and enjoyed good conversation and then we began my favorite part which is telling
what we are grateful for. We go around the table and each person gives their list. The kids are basic but then you get to the adults and we get all misty-eyed because we realize how blessed we really are.
We have so much and as we talk about it, it becomes clearer. It is the little things that make the special differences in each of our lives. For me, it is doing things with my sister that make her life a little easier. It is helping Maureen by taking Thomas to band practice at 6am when she can't or buying Sam a concrete at Sherry's (getting Sam to eat is a major victory any time). It is getting a hug from John and knowing that he means it.. It is talking about my tv shows with my cousin, Margaret or doing my Bible study long distance with my good friend, Lynn. Little things mean a lot.
I am very grateful and I do thank you, God, for being in my life.

What a kid!!!!!!! This is my great great nephew: Henry James Harris. He is as cute as a bug's ear and
happy to boot.
Here he is sitting with his Great Grandma and Mom and he is just lovin' life.
It is made from one of those things used to grow tomatoes. The Angel is shouting for joy the
great tidings. Next come the Kings and then Mary, the Babe and Joseph inside the circle with the
begin to do it justice. I am so proud of my incredible sister. Her art fills my whole being and brings
the true meaning of Christmas to my heart. This Nativity will join some of her others at the LDS
Celebration of the Nativity the first weekend in December. The Church brings together several hundred Nativities from all over the world along with musical concerts. It is a fun place to see
and a great way to start the Christmas Season. You can have your Black Friday....I will take this anytime.
