Thankful For So Much

Today started out a little rough when I showed up at my moms with my younger sister was in a mood. I helped my mom in the kitchen and made my award winning cheesy cornbread casserole. The tension in the house washed away by the time we sat down to share our Thanksgiving meal.

My mom started grace with the Lord’s Prayer. I heard my father recite some of the prayer. I am thankful for that. His aphasia has caused him to lose his speech. He will sing along to happy birthday sometimes too. I cherish those little moments when I have him back in those brief moments. After our meal we went in the backyard and played with my nephews. I am thankful for my family.

My sister and I decided to brave 3 hours in the cold and it paid off. We scored some great black Friday finds at ToyRUs for Santa gifts for the boys.

When we got home, the Longhorns decided to finish off the day with a beautiful win. I cant think of a better way to end the UT/A&M rivalry. The Aggies were very hostile and were poor sports the entire game. And all I have to say to them is…Nah nah nah nah! Nah nah nah nah! Hey hey hey! Good-bye!

I thought I would start the week off with a little motivational/inspirational poster I found on Pinterest via Flickr. Thanks lizzylee for sharing this.
