Well it is just an ordinary day to all other here in Albania, but to us the celebrated and coveted day of feasting for THANKSGIVING! We gathered with about 25 people in the Upper Room at the Dabney’s home for a day of turkey (yes, we do have those here and no, we don’t have to kill them and pluck them), ham, potatoes, stuffing, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole (Amy, the team was all VERY thankful for the Durkee’s onions… thank you!) and more! We went around the table and shared what we were thankful for this year- God’s grace is certainly the biggest factor in all of our thanksgivings.
So the Wheelis family, what are we thankful for this year? Well… it must be the precious prize we have in our daughter and celebrating her first Thanksgiving! It was THREE years ago this month, that we first submitted our paperwork to America World Adoption Agency to start the process which led us to her! WOW!
Blessings to you and yours!
