Happy Thanksgiving From Chief Paleface

One of our dear friends had a Thanksgiving feast for the kids. The children all came as Pilgrims or Indians (or in Payton's himself.) Payton is not a fan of dressing up, Benjamin on the other hand was thrilled with his loin cloth and feather.

Our family continues to thank the Lord for His goodness in each and every situation. We have seen His faithfulness on display in our the moments of rejoicing and in the moments of tears. Our hearts overflow with thankfulness for gifts too numerous to list...Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

This morning while I was helping Payton get dressed he said, "Mom, dad is the greatest guy." I of course told him he was right. He then said, "Mom do you miss dad during the day, I sure do." I told him I did and then he added, "I love dad, He is my very best friend."

My high school Bible teacher used to tell us he did not believe there was one perfect person for everyone to marry. That as you dated people you would see there are lots of people out there that were on target (that you could make a marriage work with) but there are most definitely people out there that are closer and closer to dead center...Today is one of many days where I am walking around with a smile on my face knowing that with Tony, I hit the bullseye. I look at my children who are miniatures of him and I know there is no one else in the world I would rather have 2 miniatures of...He is it for me- this is something I have known for over 6 years now...but to hear and see the love in the voice and eyes of my child for his dad overwhelmed me with joy in the Lord. Only He could give gifts this sweet.
