Giving Thanks

Very unusual for me, I find myself unable to make myself go to bed at 11:51 pm.  Maybe I am just enjoying the sound of the rain on the rooftop too much.  Maybe I just want to stretch out this slow, comfortable night at home with my husband upstairs working and my sweet little girl covering me with kisses on the couch.  Maybe my mind is too full of the many things for which I have to be thankful.  Tonight was the Thanksgiving service at church, which is one of my very favorite services of the year; we get to center our hearts on God before the craziness and  commercialism of Christmas begins.  This Christmas will be like no other before due to the sudden arrival of family in town.  We don't know how the season will go.  It could be great.  It could be disastrous.  What we do know-what Mr. M and I do know-is that we have much for which to give great thanks to God, and that is exactly what we will do.
