Turkey Day!

I was lucky to spend my Thanksgiving with lots of family. Kristy and her kids, Chad & Clara and my parents drove up from California. My Uncle Dale (Mom's brother) and my Aunt Teresa invited us to have dinner with them at their house in Springville and my cousin Lauren (who I am very close with) and her boyfriend were there. So it was a great dinner with great company. Later Brent came over and we took the Color Test. Brent and I are both VERY blue. Which is great. After taking the color test and going around saying what we were thankful for... I went over to Brent's families house and spent a little time with his brother (who came from Vegas) and his girlfriend Liisa, His two sisters and their families that live here and then his parents who drove from Colorado. Anyway... It was a great day and I am thankful for a lot and know that I am very blessed. So I will leave this entree with the lyrics from Josh Groban's "Thankful" because I love that song and I feel like it says it all. I wish there were more songs like this.
Somedays we forget
To look around us
Somedays we can't
see
The joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give.

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can
be.
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see.

It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Look beyond ourselves
There's so much s
orrow
It's way too late to sa
y
I'll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth
It's so long overdue

So for tonight we pray for
What we know c
an be
And every day we hop
e for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can
still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Even with our differences
There is a place we're all connected
Each of us can find each other's light

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can'
t see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though this world needs so much more

There's so much to be thankful for

P.S. I don't know why the lyrics got bigger at the end. I tried to fix it, but it won't let me. Sorry... deal with it. :o)

Yeah!!! It sounds like you had such a great holiday. I'm glad things went so well for you. It's great to see family and reflect on the things you're thankful for. We need to do lunch again sometime soon and catch up... :)

I thought the words getting bigger at the end was a nice touch...I thought you did it on purpose. I like that song too. I played it today in seminary.
