Pragmatic Compendium

inspiring the pragmatic practice of intimacy with Christ

thankful. 11.27-30.09

11.27.09 I’m thankful for soup. I know that sounds strange, but FirstHusband can make some seriously good soup. This past week, he ended up smoking three turkeys (two for a charity dinner), a lamb shank and a ham. That’s THREE huge crockpots of turkey soup and one of ham/lamb soup. Very, very GOOD soup.

11.28.09 I’m thankful for my husband, who prepared our Thanksgiving meal all by himself today while I was on client site because I couldn’t connect from home. (See thankful 11.30.09) We served Thanksgiving dinner at our church this year, so we had our family meal on Saturday. He prepared the ENTIRE meal himself. I cleaned up – and PACKED the fridge with leftovers – and soup – until all our food storage containers were full. We are so very, truly blessed.

11.29.09 I’m so thankful for my son’s sense of humor. His quick, dry wit always keeps us on our toes. And his grin is part of his character. Absolute GREAT person.

BestDad/FirstHusband: FavoriteSon, there is a table right in front of you, ya know.

FavoriteSon (with a plate of food perched precariously on his knee and my favorite grin on his face): God didn’t make tables. He made knees.

Me: Jesus was a carpenter. He made tables. Use that one please.

11.30.09 I’m SOOOOO Very thankful for the ability to connect to client computers remotely and work from home. Last night, as I prepared to teach a custom Windows 7 class this morning, I was able to work until the wee hours of the morning – from the safety and comfort of my own home. The internet is WONDERFUL.


I’m participating in a month of Thanksgiving hosted by Rebecca Writes. If you want to join in, post something you are thankful for and then link up over at Rebecca’s blog!
