i went to the temple for the very first time with dominique on thanksgiving. doug and i went went along to do a session with her on thursday, which just happened to be thanksgiving day. we have never been with her as she ended up going through in samoa right before she went on her mission, so it was a lovely experience for us all to be there, together at all. i really can't tell you just how wonderful it is to have her home with us.
i always feel like i have a bit of a claim on thanksgiving seeing as my grandfather was american, and this year i only had one thought all day... how grateful i am not only to have enough for myself, but to have enough to give. i have so much, everything i need (and want!) and i am able to help others with things they need. that's the greatest blessing of all. ♥
