Happy Turkey Day!

For us, at least. When you have a family full of nurses, you get used to celebrating holidays on the fly. Thanksgiving is one that we always celebrate a little off-calendar. John works Thanksgiving and New Years so that he can have Christmas off. He's not working today, so we are making our turkey dinner today. On the menu---

Turkey, of course, and gravy
Mashed potatoes
Sweet potatoes with fresh cranberries
Green bean casserole
Cranberry sauce
Seven layer salad
Pecan pie
Pumpkin pie

Tomorrow I will travel with the children to have Thanksgiving with my family. My parents are domestic members of Little Portion Hermitage and live practically next door to the monastery . It has become our tradition to join them at the Hermitage for Thanksgiving dinner.

We thank God for our tremendous blessings this year, especially for the gift of having Kain with us.
