Everyone was stirring, even the mouse!
We are in the full swing of getting ready for our Thanksgiving guests. We are having a family of 8 come over. The perfect thanksgiving size. It is my firm belief that you have to have a big crowd for a proper Thanksgiving Day.
Here is my list for today:
~I know I said my family before, but I want to specify my mom. She is such a sweet, loving, willing to listen Mother. I truly feel like I could go to her with anything and she would be willing to listen and give advice. I treasure my mother.
~Again, singling out my sister. How do you describe someone who understands you perfectly and compliments you so well. I love her with all my heart.
~ My dad. I am so blessed to have a father who is intelligent, witty, a good teacher and who loves the Lord. I am so thankful for his training as I've grown up, particularly as to having a Christian world view.
~ My love for books. Seeing how much I love reading now, it's hard to believe that I didn't start out loving to read. But I didn't fall in love with it until I was eight (don't laugh! In our family that is late. Shannon was reading voraciously by 6.) and read "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe". I actually just finished putting away the books I got at the library book sale.
~ Acting. I am so thankful that I love acting. This is another thing I almost missed out on, except it was obviously in the Lord's plan. In my junior year in high school, we started attending a homeschool writing club, Awesome Author's Association. They did a play every year. That year they did "The Wind in the Willows." Well, I really wanted to be in it, but rehearsals were pretty far away and we thought it was just a run-of-the-mill homeschool drama group. But we did volunteer to provide the intermission music. So we went to the performance and found out that this was anything but a run-of-the-mill group. They were good! They were really good! So the next year Shannon and I auditioned and were cast in "Cheaper by the Dozen". I played Mother and loved it! I've been in love ever since. I have been in many things, but have never been paid for an acting job. But I have received my first paying acting job and will begin rehearsals in the new year. I am so thankful for this new opportunity to earn money!
Alright, now for the actual Thanksgiving Day! See you then!
