The last Thursday in November is always Thanksgiving in the U.S. Over here in Malaysia it is just the last Thursday in November. But just because Malaysia doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving doesn’t mean I shouldn’t. So, today our family will be hosting some family and friends that God has blessed us with and that we are thankful for. There are several traditional things that take place on this day. One is we eat… a lot. Today we have a nice roasted turkey, sweet potatoes, pecan pie and pumpkin cheese cake all ready for our guests. We also tell each other what we are thankful for.
I have mixed feelings about this time of year. I know it’s good to be thankful, and to list all the things we’re thankful for. I guess I get a little frustrated that we have to make a special day for this. I honestly don’t take what I do nor where I live for granted. I’m so thankful to be living with my family in Malaysia. We have wonderful friends, a beautiful house with a great location near the ocean.
I am thankful for Dalat, a wonderful school that my daughter gets to attend just 5 min. from our house. I am thankful that my wife and daughter would choose to be living here rather than any other place on earth. And speaking of my wife, I’m very thankful for Alou who has unending grace and patience for a very ADD husband. Lord help her!
I am thankful for sponsors that believe in my talent and see my work worth linking their valuable name with. I never take for granted subscribers and readers like you. You make this whole blog thing worthwhile.
Last but not least, I am thankful for a God who loves me and has blessed me so much.
Take a minute and tell me what you are thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends around the world!
