Giving Thanks

This week thankfulness is on the hearts of many. I’m thankful for you, my blogging buddy.

Gwynly and I attended our annual Thanksgiving service Sunday evening, heard many members of our church family share the ways the Lord has blessed them this past year, and took a tray full of turkey cookies. We decided this year marked the end of a long-time tradition. Our daughter is away at college, and making them without her isn’t the same.

I’m taking a blogging break this week to spend time with my family.

I wish those of you in the U.S.A. a very happy Thanksgiving.

See you on November 28 with another installment of Copyediting with Keli.

    I hope you’re enjoying your break. As I said on Erica’s blog, it’s important to acknowledge priorities. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    One of our annual traditions, begun shortly after we were married, has been baking our Christmas fruitcakes on the Remembrance (Veterans) Day weekend. Our children always got right into it, helping to measure, mix and stir (and, of course, taste) all the ingredients. We put on Christmas music and sang along as we worked. While they were in college they usually managed to get home for that weekend, but now they’re married and live in distant cities, so we’re on our own. They’ve started the same tradition with their children, and my husband and I have continued it on our own, but isn’t the same, so I know how you feel.
