thankful tuesdays

good advice if you are preparing the feast.

we're all thankful for something this time of year. hopefully.  even in my family's darkest moments we have found gratitude.  i know this year has been full of ups and downs for everyone including my family.  i do hope that we all have a chance to gather on thursday, eat good food, and take a moment to give thanks.  here's what i am most thankful for...

  • my husband, my son, and the growing, very hungry baby in my belly 
  • the super folks  heroes at the heart ministry center that delivered thanksgiving meals for over 400 families in the omaha metro last saturday
  • my brother and his family who are making our thanksgiving feast
  • all the coats the preschool parents, parishioners, and CCD children at our preschool collected for the heart ministry center's clients
  • my MIL is getting better everyday and can use a walker and get herself out of chairs.  she'll be home in a couple of weeks!!
  • that i live a world where a parent can overcome his greatest grief to celebrate his children and make life better for other kids through art.
  • that it is tuesday which means it only two more days to my favorite holiday!!
have a happy thanksgiving all!
feeling guilty about all the yummy food? drink a smoothie.  smoothies solve almost all problems.

blueberry banana smoothie
1 frozen banana
1 c. frozen blueberries
1 1/2 T/ ground flax seed
1/2 c. vanilla yogurt
1/2 - 3/4 c. milk 
blend together in blender and feel the guilt melt away.
