Today is my birthday- the big 26! It's been kind of a strange day, but turned out to be fun. I wasn't sure if people would remember my birthday, since it always seems to fall at inconvienent times (Turkey day, during break, right after break). But, people were super great to me today which made me feel good. I just can't believe I'm really 26.

I'm leaving for the airport soon- headed to Dayton, OH for Thanksgiving with my family. I can't wait to get there! There is so much for us to be thankful for this year- the birth of Micah (my cousin's new baby born about a week and half ago) and my aunt's successful recovery from cancer. I think this year will be very special for us, although it will be different. We will go to Donna's house rather than eating at our family's house, but it will be wonderful to be all together! I am so thankful for family! I've been thinking about the song "Give Thanks" lately-
Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because God's given Jesus Christ, the Son.
I do indeed give thanks with my grateful heart for new life. Happy Thanksgiving!
