"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

-Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings

Happy Thanksgiving!

So much to be thankful for! And also alot of prayers still being sent up hoping they get answered!

I'm thankful for my family... those two lovely little boys and my wonderful husband! We have so much, and while at times it seems we do nothing but struggle, I know we have it pretty good.

Tomorrow as we sit down for our dinner at noon, we will all be praying for our baby girl, that if she is born already that she is safe, warm, and cared for. And if she is not born yet, that God will still watch over her and her mother. We will also pray for the other children, and all the waiting parents. That this will be our last Thanksgiving without her. And as we eat our dinner, take our nap, and then head out into the back acreage to find and cut down our Christmas tree, we will all be praying that next year we can have her here with us, and continue this wonderful tradition as a family of 5.

Happy Thanksgiving!
