I'm so thankful for this day of rest.
I know that seems odd when we've been cooking non-stop for days.
But today was a day to rest and reflect and eat.
And, ahem...watch football.
I cooked all day yesterday and Magoo put the turkey on the rotisserie out back this morning.
Easy. Peaceful. Comforting.
Doesn't she have nice manners?
We are stuffed and sleepy.
Today, we took comfort in one another.
We took comfort in our home.
We ate and laughed and loved.
But, we missed him.
We missed his loudness. We missed his stupid jokes. We missed his hugs.
We missed his ridiculously large feet on the couch. We missed how he always eats and eats and eats.
And then he eats some more.
We missed his enthusiasm for the game.
We pray. We breathe. We are grateful for our blessings.

You may not have had your favorite meal at home, you big turkey eating boy~
But the Longhorns brought it home tonight.
And we know just how much you loved it.
We love you.
P.S. Sophie wants to know if she can have your drumstick?
