Thanksgiving 2013

Because we were not having a traditional Thanksgiving meal at lunch time like we normally do with extended family, we decided to have our own special Thanksgiving lunch.  Cajun turkey breast, roasted vegetables, homemade cranberry sauce, wild rice broccoli and mushroom casserole, green beans, and orange slices.  It was super yummy!
We have so much to be grateful for.  Elder Wirthlin said, “Gratitude turns a meal into a feast and drudgery into delight. It softens our grief and heightens our pleasure. It turns the simple and common into the memorable and transcendent. It forges bonds of love and fosters loyalty and admiration.”  I feel my greatest moments of love and joy when surrounded by my little family.  They make me beyond grateful to be a mother and wife.
