And, guess what? I survived Thanksgiving.
We were not ready, the day came too soon, but still we made it out alive! And, with lots of great memories that I am more than Thankful for!
The day started off slow and then friends, family, food and laughter overcame our home! It was an amazing time. My kids had too much fun, we ate too much food and we can't wait for it again NEXT year! Ha.
God has definitely Blessed our little family this year in many ways! I know that we should be thankful everyday of the year but I like Thanksgiving in particular and I see it as a day to reflect on the past 11 months and await the next month to end and a NEW year to begin! 2013 will be here before we know it. And, this year I am not only thankful for life itself but for everything good and bad that 2012 brought me. The good always outweighing the bad.
We are ready for a new beginning for a fresh start and Thanksgiving is that link between those two locations...the now and the future. I thank God everyday for the health and safety of my family and the strength and faith that He has rooted in our hearts! We are transformed and Blessed because of Him. This year has proven to be a challenge and only because of Him and His grace have we made it through it all.
I hope that your Thanksgiving was filled with Blessings, reflections and new beginnings. Here is a little picture re-cap of ours!
Pictures are in no particular order and include our Thanksgiving feast at Santi's school! Enjoy!!
As you can see it was just the right amount of heart, food and holiday cheer! Counting down to Christmas and New Years!
Happy Thanksgiving from Team Gomez!!!
