I'd planned to write an extensive list of all of the things that I am thankful for this year here on Simply Suz, but what I am most thankful for at the moment is the chance to spend time with my family this week. I'll spare you the list, as I'd rather be counting my blessings with my family than spending time recounting them here on the blog.

I am so blessed to have a wonderful, supportive, loving, faithful family & to have married into a pretty amazing family, as well. This Thanksgiving, I am also especially thankful that I grew up having a relationship with all four of my grandparents, & I am praying hard that the Lord stands beside my Grandpa K as he recovers from the stroke he suffered on Sunday & as he faces the seriousness & difficulty of cancer. I hope that as he spends his Thanksgiving in a hospital room, he is reminded how loved, cherised & lifted up in prayer he is... Love you, Gramps.

  1. Some of our most memorable Thanksgivings were spent with grandparents in hospital rooms (somehow, it worked out that if my grandparents had to be in the hospital, it almost always overlapped with Thanksgiving)! It helped me re-define Thanksgiving from being a strictly traditional big table surrounded by family members performing our identical yearly tasks to being a day to enjoy life with family and be especially thankful to have each other anywhere the setting might be! I hope your grandpa recovers, I will keep him in my prayers, and have a happy Thanksgiving yourself!
