First-time Turkey

In the last two days I have heard a whole lot about being thankful.

First-time Turkey
At a meeting last night, the guest speaker shared, among other things, about the plight of the Cuban people and how thankful we in CR ought to be for our abundance. Then today my mother and I hung out with her friends. This very cool group of ladies has been meeting together for over ten years, once a week, to support each other.


They had decided to cook an actual Thanksgiving meal. It was quite the exciting novelty production, since people here don’t normally cook whole turkeys! It was very entertaining, and the meal turned out delicious. They spoke about the spirit of thanksgiving, and the love and joy was abundant! Lots of laughter. So Thankful.

Broken sidewalks and stranded cab
We had quite the adventure getting home. It involved walking quite a bit, and a cab with a clutch that gave in and broke down. When we finally got home, I was so Thankful!

Freezing our tushes!
I also got to spend some time with my “little” brother (so he’s a foot taller than me! doesn’t mean a thing) and his wife. I really love them. I am extremely proud of all they are accomplishing. It was a rare treat to have a fire going and drink hot chocolate together! The weather here has been freezing (for Costa Rica)! Okay, I exaggerate. But it should be mid 70’s, and in fact feels like mid-50’s, with wind chill. For us that is COLD. Family plus warmth? Makes me so Thankful.
