We have so much to be Thankful for this year. We began the year in Russia with no clue that we would be moving. We have traveled from Russia, to Turkey to the US and then finally to Belize. We are grateful that God kept us safe during all of that travel. We are grateful that all of our parents and my grandmother are all alive and doing well. We are grateful for the time we got to spend with our siblings while we were in the sates. We are grateful that our sons are incredible young men who are both out on their own finding their places in the world. We are grateful that we have each other and for all that we are experiencing and learning together here in Belize.
We decided that for our first Thanksgiving here in Belize to keep our celebration simple. We are going out for dinner. Not a turkey dinner although those are available here. We heard that the meals sold here in Belmopan are turkey, rice and beans, and a piece of dessert. We don't eat out very often since we are on a tight budget. So for our holiday treat we are planning a trip to The Wing Stop; a chicken wing place not far from here. For dessert I am going to make a sweet potato cheesecake, we plan to watch White Christmas and of course there will be football on TV.
No matter what you have for dinner or who you plan to celebrate with may it truly be a blessed day!!
