Today marks the beginning of Thanksgiving break for my kiddos. They have a yearly tradition this time of year. They start praying for this:
So, in hopes of balancing things out, my husband and I pray fervently for sun, sun, and more sun. And then we get into a big family discussion at the table; each side trying to convince the other side to join their prayers.
My youngest tries to describe it to me:
“You see, Mom, it’s been a long time since you’ve known the way of the kid. . . ”
My son bursts out laughing, pointing at me, “Oh, you’ve been burned!”
Then I narrow my eyes and say softly, “Too far.”
And suddenly they want to say what they’re thankful for.
It’s good to have traditions. What are your Thanksgiving traditions?
