Thanksgiving at the Roten's

So we had our first Thanksgiving as a married couple. I started out the week with a fever and bad cold. I quickly recovered and by Tuesday night felt better. So I was surprised when I woke up Thursday unable to speak - literally. While this might be considered a blessing to some in my family (HAHA) it was not very good timing. Despite not feeling well Michael and I put together big meal complete with pumpkin and apple pie. Michaels folks came down from millers creek and spent the day with us. My in-laws are so sweet, she cleaned the kitchen after dinner and let me nap on the Couch and my father-in-law got me some home remedies from the store (lemons and honey) to help get my voice back. All this to say, we had a great Thanksgiving and Michael and I never cease to be amazed at how God has blessed us - not just with material things, but if sending Christ to die on the cross was the only thing God ever did for us that would be more than enough to be thankful for! And to all our family and friends we love you and are blessed to be a apart of your lives.
