We are thankful for you! If you are reading this, that means you are our treasured family, friends, co-workers, neighbors old and new…. because really who else would want to read the random stuff we babble on about?? But we just wanted you to know how much we love you, how we appreciate your love, your unyielding prayers, your enthusiasm for what we are doing, your financial support, and your care and concern. We can feel it across the many miles, and our hearts are very full, especially at this time of Thanksgiving!
We were hoping for a turkey and a traditional celebration, but due to lack of money being wired in and Haiti complications, we couldn’t get a turkey here. Since we are still in St. Louis we are at the mercy of whatever they have on hand, and they usually cook up some pretty tasty things! The funny part was, all week leading up to Thanksgiving we enjoyed mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, some very tasty traditional items. However, come that Thanksgiving day, for some reason I still am not sure, we didn’t have any of those items. Instead, the cook made this mashed potato thing, it was like a mashed potato sandwich, with chicken, peas, corn, and other tasty things inside. So, it was like Thanksgiving, but with all the goodness rolled into one item. Strange yes, but still tasty! And we did make brownies that night, so of course we considered the day a success all and all!
