Thanksgiving week is already here in the USA. Time seems to go by much faster. When people ask me about my plans, my first response is- SLEEP.
I will have a long weekend starting Wednesday because the schools, college, and university are all closed Wednesday. So Wednesday will be a no alarm clock day. 🙂
But I do have a plan for the long weekend that will be a new one for me. I plan to start writing a book. I will sleep late Wednesday and then spend the day in a quiet place and write. Prayer would be appreciated for this endeavor.
Thursday I will probably spend with a refugee family but not sure yet.
Friday while people are going crazy shopping, I will watch some college football and then hopefully do some more writing.
One thing I enjoy a great deal every year before Thanksgiving is sharing the story of the first Thanksgiving with my students. It seems appropriate to share the story with immigrants and refugees because the Pilgrims were immigrants who came here hoping for a better life.
I already had one Thanksgiving meal. One of our local Rotary Clubs, Rotary Club 14, has adopted the elementary school where my morning Family Literacy class meets. This year they brought a Thanksgiving meal to share with my class. They have done so four years in a row now. It is wonderful for my students to be able to have a meal with professionals and a great experience for the Rotary members who come. The local paper wrote about it. Here is a link- Thanksgiving Meal.
Most important to me is to take time to Thank God for all he has done for me.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
