Thanks to Norman Rockwell, it never seems that Thanksgiving lives up to the hype that surrounds it.  After all, based on his painting, we all hope for that picturesque moment when we all sit down – in perfect unity – to enjoy an exquisite meal all while we laugh, talk, cry and simply be….together.  I guess there’s always next year.

Thankfully – no pun intended – God takes our mess and makes something beautiful.  When we are able to step back and actually see it, our eyes well up with tears as we recognize the good gifts he gives us.

This little video gives a cute reminder of what we can look forward to as we sit down with family and friends to share a meal sometime in the next few days.  I hope you are able to step back and enjoy the blessings that God has given you.

Happy Thanksgiving.
