Falling Into Perspective

If your pumpkin pie is liquid, your turkey is still frozen in the middle and your family is arguing, you can still be thankful on Thanksgiving.

Everyone is busy today starting to cook up their Martha Stewart masterpieces or running to the store one last time so not a roll will be out of place on that perfect spread of a feast tomorrow. 

At 31 weeks pregnant, I just fell flat on my back on the stairs and my two girls went down with me. We are all okay, including baby, and for that I am so thankful. 

This was not a fun accident but I am thankful for it because it does help put tomorrow into perspective. I could care less if all we eat is corn out of a can tomorrow, I'm so thankful for this amazing family to eat it with that God gave me. 

"I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need." -Philippians 4:12

Tomorrow is not just a day to be thankful for food, family and things or another chance to go buy stuff for the next big holiday. It's a day to rest, to reflect, to dwell with thanksgiving for all that God has given, namely His son. 

"For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." -Romans 5:7-8

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends." John 15:12-13

Thank You Lord for the reminder of how we should love and what we should be thankful for.

This is my little nurse who refused to leave my side after the fall.


  1. I'm glad you are all ok! A playdate is in order next week!

  2. How scary. Glad to know you are all okay.
