This year, Rick and I are spending Thanksgiving with my parents and our newest addition to our family, Zoey. Very low key, a down and dirty Thanksgiving with green bean casserole, football, comfy clothes and snuggles from Zoey.
And speaking of Zoey, she joined us during a season of the year that is so fitting, the season of Thanksgiving. Perhaps this Thanksgiving I am the most thankful I have been. Thankful to God. That He has blessed us with this child and forever changed our lives, in the most incredible way possible. Of course, I am beyond thankful for so many other things in my life – my sweet husband, family, friends, incredibly loyal Hous & Host readers, my health, sunshine, a comfortable bed at night, chocolate, coffee, wine, HGTV (what? I am!) and 74 other things.
But this year, it’s clear to me where my grateful heart needs to point to.
Because when God does something big, something you never thought possible, the praise goes to Him because all is possible through Him. I am reminded to praise the creator of all things, the creator of our precious Zoey Ai.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17
Happy Thanksgiving to you, my dear friends!
