We hope that each of you are enjoying a restful Sunday after Thanksgiving. We are enjoying an afternoon at home, lying on our couch, watching some football while burning a pumpkin candle and eating pumpkin pudding. Because a big part of our time in Nicaragua has centered around gratefulness, we thought we would each share a few things that we are thankful for.
Cassie is grateful for: new blossoms on our plants, generous friends, the smell of pine, an afternoon at the pool, busy but fruitful work days, a good workout, candles burning, facetime and skype, coloring with the neighbor kids, an addictive book, trying out a new recipe, my lovely nieces and nephew, chatting with a girlfriend over tea, safe travels, an upcoming Christmas visit from my family, scrambled eggs made well
Kevin is grateful for: engaged students, warm weather, peanut butter, the possibility of growing our family, a comfortable home, a thoughtful and loving wife, dark chocolate with a cup of hot, strong coffee, caring neighbors, having all of our needs met, good books, dedicated friends, a wonderful work community, seedlings growing in our garden, new and comfortable furniture, public transportation, shade trees, our kitty Brisa
If you are interested, take a look at my New Year’s Resolution back in 2012. For a year, I wrote out three things that I was grateful for. I posted more about it here and here . It really changed the way that I view the world and I often find myself listing off these things throughout my days.
We continued with our MCC Thanksgiving Piñata tradition. Isn’t he darling? Unfortunately he didn’t look this way at the end of the night.
