Remember to Give Thanks

This Thanksgiving we decided to stay at home and take it easy.
Only one other time had we not spent Thanksgiving with one of our families.

Aaahhh no packing, no traveling, no time schedule...It was actually kind of nice!
We enjoyed the day with our girls and our good friends, Stephen and Sarah.

It was a good day...
The Cowboys even won!

As I prepared for the day I began to look through my recipe box for a certain recipe and came across this sweet recipe card that was made by Mere Bear when she was around 6 0r 7 years old.

I totally lost it when I read her precious handwriting.
I think I am a bit emotional right now because in a couple of weeks our precious 22 year old pumpkin will be graduating from college!

We truly have so much to be grateful for.
This little pumpkin shaped card was a reminder to me of God's faithfulness and provision throughout the years.

2 Cups of Bisquick Mix
1 Cup of Milk
2 Eggs
1 Cup Canned Pumpkin
1 tsp Cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together and pour onto hot griddle.
Enjoy with Syrup or Plain

PRAISE THE LORD , O My Soul, and forget not all his benefits -
who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Sometimes despite God's great goodness all around me I sometimes fail to thank Him or remember what he has done for us.

May we never forget what He has done on our behalf!

Thank Him now and tell others of His wonders!

That is so sweet! I am a keeper of valuables like that too!
When my Alivia wears her beautiful cross earrings I think of you...she wears them often! :)
