Iron Bowl

This post won't mean much to you unless you are from Alabama. But I am an Alabama fan, that is the University of Alabama. Our team has had several bad years and our biggest rival, Auburn, has beat us for the past six years. This year is our year -- we are undefeated, ranked number one and next Saturday get to play in the SEC championship game. But the part that is better than any of those things is the fact that today, Alabama beat Auburn 36-0!! I am not a sports fanatic, but I am a die-hard Bama fan and all I can say is...................

Today is Thanksgiving Day and I have so much to be thankful for! I'm sure my list would be very similar to yours if I started naming all my blessings. I have a wonderful family, and last week my husband and I celebrated 28 years of marriage. We have a daughter who is such a great person and is working hard in college. I am so happy that she is with us today for Thanksgiving. We have a son who is using his creative gifts that God has given him and he's actually living his dream. He isn't with us today and I miss him so much, but he has a sweet and beautiful Christian girlfriend and I am happy that he's getting to spend the holiday with her family in Pennsylvania. He sent me a picture of the snow yesterday and said he's never experienced a white Thanksgiving before. Another thing I'm thankful for is that we have full time jobs, and part time jobs also. At work the other day I was talking to another employee and we were saying how we wished we were off that day. There was a client sitting there in the reception area and he heard us talking. He said that he just wished he had a job. I realized right then how blessed I am just to be able to work and pay bills and have all the "stuff" I have. But all of that cannot compare to having peace in your soul. Of everything I have, my greatest blessing today is the peace that passes understanding which comes directly from God and a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Today we will go to my parent's house for the traditional feast complete with turkey, my mom's homemade dressing, macaroni and cheese, peas, green beans, squash casserole, broccoli casserole, turnip greens, four layer delight and a lot more that I can't even remember. My sisters and some of their families will be there also. After that we'll go to my mother-in-law's house to see her for a while. I love this day and I love eating all that food. I just wish I wouldn't get full so quick and could eat more!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Praise the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 106:1

Life is Busy

Life is just so busy! I miss my blogger buddies and I miss blogging! I hope you are all doing well and that you have a happy Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for! I don't know what happened, but I should have never written that Lazy River post back in February, because ever since then my life has gotten busier and busier and I can't seem to slow down. I'm ready to float again for a while!
