We had an epic Thanksgiving this year. Dan and I loaded the kids into the car and drove halfway across the country to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a reunion on my dad’s side of the family. It was pretty cool.
On Tuesday, Jackson had an earache and I spent many hours on the phone talking to doctors and pharmacies. Then I was blessed to spend two magical hours alone with Katie. We collected seashells and built fairy sandcastles. Those two hours will be one of my most cherished memories with her.
With all the activity, I hardly noticed the Thanksgiving holiday. Gratitude flowed out of my heart all week as I watched my kids, my husband, and my extended family laugh and enjoy themselves. Thanksgiving lasted more than one day this year. It was an entire week long!
I’ll leave you with this last parting shot. These are donuts from a place called Duck Donuts. They are probably THE best food I’ve ever put in my mouth. Y’all know how much I love Chick-fil-a and creme brulee? And about a thousand other foods? They PALE in comparison to these little morsels of heaven. Thank you, God, for Duck Donuts!
