Let the poor say, "I am rich"

What makes us wealthier than having a family? Never in my life have I been wealthy by American standards, and I probably never will be. However, I was raised in a family of faith that treasured art, music, learning, and relationships and because of that, I am wealthy. Although our journey as a family has been difficult, God has been faithful and has brought us through the trials. Yesterday we all gathered for Thanksgiving. Here are a few pictures from the day.

SIL Lori and my brother Alan with their son Jonathan.

All the grandkids at the big table!

We like to take pictures. :-) This is my brother Lawrence.


Beyond family, Christian friends are God's greatest blessing. My friend and co-worker Henry gave us a pinata that we had a blast with! Thanks Henry!!

We let the little guys go first so my nephews David and Jonathan got the first whacks. SO much fun!

Those crazy Burley/Underwood's - a pinata at Thanksgiving!

It was unusual having a pinata...but the young 'uns sure did have fun.

I think we should make one in Thanksgiving shapes from now on for each year...a turkey, a sweet potato, a piece of celery, a cranberry....the possibilities are endless.
