Twenty family members and close friends gathered together, prayed together, ate together, and then laid around on the couch wishing for yoga pants. We were joined by five others for dessert. It was a spectacular day and evening where we enjoyed full bellies and fuller hearts.
Oh and that win by my Washington Redskins was the best dessert ever.
I hope your Thanksgiving nourished you as well – body and soul.
