Here is my beautiful family!
Vacation in Oregon
I am so excited about this post! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and one of the most cherished times that I spend with my family. Today I am going to tell you about the traditional Thanksgiving menu for my family. Yum yum! Just thinking about it makes me super excited for what is to come in just a couple weeks!
Dressing Balls – regular & oyster
Aunt Jackie’s Rolls
Flat Bread Sticks
Grandma Betty’s Dumplins
Aunt Betty’s Green Beans
Uncle Paul’s Candy Apple Salad
My mom’s Seven Layer Salad
Shirley’s Cranberry Salad
Cousin Carolyn’s Pimento Cheese
Lots of random appetizer foods
Aunt Rochelle’s Pumpkin Pie
Rice Krispie Treats
lots of other desserts
These are the items that we always have and we usually have a lot of other food also. We typically feed more than 50 people at Thanksgiving and it it always a ton of fun!!
What have I been learning this week?
The Lord has been teaching me several things this week. The first is that I need to have friends in my life who are willing to ask the hard questions and who I feel like I can talk to about anything and everything. I need to rely on these people and not feel like I have to keep everything to myself or do everything myself. He has also been teaching me the value of how to let others in, this is a hard one, because I don’t like to trust people, even though I know I should.
The importance of family is another thing the Lord has been teaching me. I don’t know what I would do without my family. At times the frustrate me and I get upset with them, but I love them and I think I need to show them that more. I have taken advantage of the fact that I have a mom and dad who are still together and who love me and support me even when I do things that they don’t understand.
The Lord has also been teaching me, the importance of knowing him. Not just in one way, as Lord, but in many ways, as creator, lord, all knowing … The list could go on and on.
I could probably list more about things that the Lord is teaching me, but I will leave it at the importance of friends, family, and knowing His name.
