Happy Thanksgiving! and Can You Guess?

This post is an anniversary of sorts, not an anniversary in my family life, but my blogging life. Can you guess what number this post is? I can't think of any little gift to offer you if you guess correctly, but if you want to make a guess in the comments, I will offer a special prayer for you.

It was nearly three years ago that I began my blog with a post about Christmas shopping and the Christian/Christmas spirit. Although I now have a different kind of part-time job, perhaps we can all be reminded, myself included, to make life a little lighter for retail workers, who serve us so faithfully. If you would like to read that first blog post, you can find it here.

But this week, it's time to start getting ready for our Thanksgiving celebrations. I've bought some of my food but still have to buy my turkey. I am so thankful that we can...and for so many other blessings, as well!

Last night I read a beautiful post on Thanksgiving by Cay Gibson at her blog Cajun Cottage Under the Oaks. If you'd like to enjoy the article, too, you can find it here.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Esther,

Can you believe it? It's only 500! I spent a year writing every day, but then life got busy once again. :)

Thanks for still reading...and commenting. And thanks for sharing yourself with us through your blog.

God bless.

With those promised prayers :),
MM
