It’s Thanksgiving…there will be no turkey, no big family gathering and I am OK…anyone who knows me can figure that’s a BIG DEAL….It is one of my. if not my favorite holiday….no gifts just family time and of course eating together, again a big deal to me. And yet this year I find myself alone, well my daughter and I alone. My husband after 10 years is back on the road w/the RR and my other children are enjoying and being enjoyed by their significant others family’s….and truly I am OK…THAT is a God thing and the first thing I did this morning was list out prayerfully all that I AM thankful for. What an amazing God you know?!!!
We went to Lambeau Field earlier this week. For Monday nite football to be exact and it was a great trip. (If you saw Chewbacca we were right in front of him, he was wearing a Viking jersey so surely he got some TV time!?) Not just the game but the time spent with family, Dan’s brothers and their wives and a High School friend of Dan’s…all of it was just amazing. God was so present in every conversation and moment of time as He always is but this time Dan and I were so consciously aware of Him it was a blessing every moment of it.
Dara and I went to see Rent last nite w/Jared and Allison. A good movie not great by my humble estimation but a good movie. Today we are going to see….something…not sure we have decided. I want to see Yours Mine and Ours and yet am scared I have it built up too much…I loved Henry and Lucille in the original and cannot quite imagine it remade, but the idea of it really draws me. We want to see Walk the Line but I know that is one Dan wants to see and I want to make sure we get to perhaps do that together.
It is different …after 10 years off the road to have him back. Trying to adopt God’s plan in this but I really am struggling with it. I know it’s not that big of a deal but to us right now it kind of is. We spent all our early married lives, the kids growing up years dealing w/his absence and I don’t want to do it again and there is the truth of it…I don’t want to…..Dan of course is amazing and approaching decisions and choices in a really prayerful manner…so attractive…and very followable, watching him seek God’s will ! God is amazing and I hope all are having great time w/their families and turkey and dressing and all the trimmings!! Happy Thanksgiving!
