There is nothing quite like living half a world away from our family and spending Thanksgiving day alone to make us realize how blessed we are to have such a large and quirky family!
For even 6000 miles do not dim our love for each other or the feeling of closeness that our family shares… a simple phone call can truly bridge a great distance.
So today I am thankful for my family, for our ability to visit often, for my husband who makes the empty space full.
I am thankful that I live in the digital age where letters don’t take weeks to get there and my mothers voice is a simple 10 digits away.
I am simply thankful.
God bless all of you today as you eat until you are bursting and visit until you have no words left…. and be thankful.
Ryan and Courtney
P.S. I’ll be back to write about the wedding and our trip and to visit with all of you on Monday!
