Happy Thanksgiving!

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."--1 Thes 5:16-18

What a wonderful thanksgiving day! I'm in Delaware with my parents and my sister, and we've already enjoyed our harvest feast. We began our day with a 5K in downtown Wilmington, an annual tradition for the Graff/Ruff family. Jackson's finally down for his nap--he was more interested in playing with the Old Bay seasoning and Cloves than in eating turkey. He can actually name spices, he's going to be a chef someday! I wanted to note some things I am especially thankful for this year.

-my wonderful son Jackson, who is the love of my life
-the ability to see the world more and more through a child's eyes
-my ability to run a 5K
-God's sovereignty and perfect will in ALL things (Romans 12:8)
-my parents who will make the trip to Michigan no matter what (it was brutal, let me tell you!)
-my husband JW who has given up his goals to stay home with Jackson and allow me to achieve mine
-good friends who are always just a phone call away
-Cool Whip

Happy Thanksgiving! I'll post some pictures later.
