Happy Thanksgiving!

"I am thankful this pond was made deep and pure for a symbol." --H.D. Thoreau

The last year of our lives has been somewhat tumultuous, accentuated by intense change and great leaps of faith. All said and done, even with every bit of change, every terrifying leap, every loss, every challenge, it's all been worth it. When we look back over the year, all we see are blessings that have been heaped upon us. Every day begets a new challenge and because of it, our family is stronger, our hearts are more peaceful and our lives are simpler. We are still learning day-by-day to become what the Lord, and we, have in sight, but without the sacrifices, we'd never be any closer. 

We spent the week with the Mister's family in Utah, who have also all seen a great deal of change and sacrifice with the economy. But what a blessing, to stand and listen to my father-in-law discuss the blessings we all have had, the gratitude for the feast, and the joy in family.

Our pond is deep and pure indeed.

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope your family finds many reasons to be grateful.
