Great Thanksgiving With Great Family

I could have another good Thanksgiving without missing the turkey dinner!

“How can I help you?”
“ You sit here and tell me what to do.”

George, and three kids were all so helpful considering me all the time all day. At the dinner table that was my first thanks to share. I love Thanksgiving, which is a great family time, but this year I felt God’s Grace more than ever.

Once Soh arrived with his wife Pinky and his beloved dog Illy from San Francisco last Sunday, the quiet house turned into a festival mode, and as Roy also came over at night the house became full of energy. Cooking dinner for 5 requires more work than for 2, but wanting to please the kids, I didn’t mind it at all.

“ Mom, you will relax now. We’ll wash dishes.”

Once the dinner was over, now the kids took over my role, and treated me like a special guest until they left yesterday afternoon.

Maybe because Soh lives at a distance, but saying, “ I want to spend the time with you. What would you like to do? “ he took me out for lunch and even on a half-day drive. Listening to a conversation that my house might need an air filter, he quietly ordered it, which arrived today. I was deeply touched by his care.

George, who could not sleep enough the night before I visited the clinic because I woke him up many times due to the cough, nausea, and stomachache, was happy to drive me to the clinic, and stayed with me for a half day at the clinic

Thankfully the prescribed Pepcid is controlling the stomachache and the nausea, but the cough hasn’t been improved, and I’ve been laying down on the couch most of the day. Yet, our family made me so happy. I don’t deserve this kind of treatment. I know so many better mothers and wives than me. This must be God’s Grace. He is with me and loves me giving me such a great family. It was one more great Thanksgiving after all!

  6. Hi Kathy, I will be thinking of you today as you travel from the west coast to the east coast. I hope the weather in Maryland is better than it is here in NH but at least it isn’t snow. I wish you nothing but good thoughts and all the prayers I can send. My love and prayers to both you and George. Love Aunt Pat
