November First

Ahhhhhhh! It is November First and someone {okay fine, Sarah} has the flu. Please pray with me that she wakes up feeling better!

On that note, with today being the first day of November, I am going to try mentioning something I am thankful for in every post until Thanksgiving Day. This holiday season is going to be a challenge for me. I love the holidays and I am very well aware that holidays are different in different countries. I want to be thankful for each and every detail no matter how I feel! I remember seeing a picture last year that said, “what if you woke up with only the things you thanked the Lord for yesterday?” Thought-provoking, isn’t it?!  I am sure Sarah will join in later when her mind has cleared a little!


“Have barely moved from here all day. Consequently, there will be no September or October recap today…”

“Well of course, I have to start with my Thanksgiving baby since I spent the entire day Thanksgiving 2008 in pain and agony! This smile can make any rough day better and I am so thankful the Lord gave her to me, four years ago Thanksgiving Day (+ 4 hours)!”

Marie has been under the weather the past few days and I haven’t been able to talk to her since this morning PST, last night EET.

I think this is a good reason to let her update and add her photo later ❤

I am alive. I went to bed feeling a little tired and woke up in the middle of the night with the worst flu I have had in forever (I can’t even remember the last time I had the flu!). At some point yesterday (I’m going to guess 3pm?) I remember waking up and thinking, “I need to take a picture.” So here it is, my day spent on the sofa…

“My 24-hours spent on the sofa.”
