Hearts full of Gratitude

We began our Thanksgiving day a new way today. We decided to start a new tradition for a family by serving others on the day when we count our blessings...and ours are so many!
We went downtown to the local Rescue Mission to help out where ever we were needed. The kids were very excited for this new adventure! It was amazing at how many volunteers they had, so there wasn't too much for us to do (we dished up pie and separated the paper plates).
But it was a very fun way to begin our Thanksgiving day, off on the right foot.
After a brief call with "Far Away" Grandma & Grandpa (how Jameson refers to my parents) we went to Jason's parents, just down the road. It was such lovely weather the big kids spent most of the day outside playing. Delicious food, football, card games (not for me, ofcourse!)and the reading of ALL the sale adds. Happy Thanksgiving! God is good~all the time.
"Enter His gates with Thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his loves endures forever, his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:4-5
