We always seem to plan everything for Thanksgiving at the last minute.  We started making plans on Monday and invited a couple of families over.  On Tuesday, I got together with a friend, and we talked about our Thanksgiving plans.  When I told her we were hosting at our house this year, she said: Erin, you are not hosting this year.  You and all your guests are coming to my house.  Never have I ever heard sweeter words.  It just might be the kindest and most gracious thing anyone has ever done for me.  She had a turkey (a first for us here in Malaysia!) and the food was amazing.  Thanks to her, my kitchen was clean today.  Her son watched Ellis and the other kids, and she even rocked my baby to sleep so I could eat.  There were seven nationalities represented around the table.  I am very thankful today!  

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever.
Psalm 136:1

Happy Thanksgiving!
