I'm so thankful that the nausea is mostly gone!  Suddenly I have a burst of energy and our house needed that energy.  We even had friends join us for lunch after church, which hasn't happened in a loooong time.

On Friday, Mr. Intensity and I managed to get a Thankful Tree on the wall.  He's really into it this year.  I wasn't sure if he'd like the idea but he's been the driving force behind it from the get-go.  Last year he wouldn't say anything (ever) that he was thankful for so the idea tanked.  This year he's enjoyed tracing and cutting out leaves as well as writing out his gratitude.

Lastly, I wanted to encourage you to think about people in your circle of influence who might not have Thanksgiving plans and invite them to join you.  It is such a holiday of togetherness; not much is stinker than being lonely on Thanksgiving.  

Like last year, we are hosting a young adult (i.e. singles) Thanksgiving dinner.  So far we've had very positive, grateful feedback - especially from those college students who can't go home for the feasting.
