It's true, the melancholy face is partly due to the missing googly eye on her turkey hat. But mostly because mother wanted to take a picture when she would rather be glitter-gluing in the kitchen. She complied with the reluctant face only after I promised a bribe of dried blueberries.
So much to be thankful for this year. Joys and celebrations, even trials and droopy faces. It's easy to be thankful when all is well, but this year is teaching me how to be thankful even when hardships come. God is good. God is enough. God gives in abundance.
Happy Thanksgiving, my friends.
