We carried forward our ski-and-eat-out Thanksgiving tradition, which is the perfect mix of huge quantities of food, playing in the snow, and not cooking. We were blessed with soft snow and 4 kids with very positive attitudes - the perfect season opener! And I have to say that our kids are looking good on their boards this year. I have about 2 years left until they can all outski me.
Today's Psalm in my daily reading was an apt summary of our weekend, the perfect combination of gratitude and delight with God, his blessings, and his creation:
God! Let people thank and enjoy you.
Let all people thank and enjoy you.
Earth, display your exuberance!
You mark us with blessing, O God, our God.
Happy Thanksgiving, from all of us to all of you!
