I’ve been on this multi-day journey to Thanksgiving. It started when I asked a group of bloggers to share their best post on thankfulness.

In a season of hectic cooking and cleaning, I was hoping for a little breath of fresh air.  What I got was a hurricane.  It’s absolutely changed my heart and renewed my soul.

I’m hostessing in-laws and strange dogs.  I’m driving six hours (round trip) to enable family to be at my house. I’m cooking for severe allergies. At first glance, you may think I need to be checked into the crazy farm. But… hear me out.
