What moment this week are you most grateful for?
I am really grateful for the whole last week, Wednesday to Sunday, that we spent with family – first mine and then Ben’s. The whole time was amazing. We went to Silver Dollar City, ate Thanksgiving dinner with about 40 members of my late father’s family, walked in the woods, spent time beside water, geocached, cooked out, and did all kinds of marvelous things.
I think the moment I am most grateful for was the first day in Missouri, when I went out by the lake and walked on this little trail all by myself, then went on the dock and looked at the water. It was so beautiful, and peaceful. I sat on a bench for a long time. I just kind of meditated, and prayed, and took some pictures, and just relaxed and spent some time in nature.
Oh, and the number two moment I am grateful for is when the roller coaster I was on at Silver Dollar City turned out to not go upside down, even though it appeared to after it had begun.
