For our first Thanksgiving back in the US we celebrated with Mike’s family. It takes being separated from such experiences to truly appreciate them. For ten-years we missed countless weddings, holidays, and family events. It is a price of missions few comprehend until they go through it.
This Thanksgiving Erin was able to do what she loves, and that is cook for others. We spent the day with Mike’s brother and sister-in-law, Mike’s niece and her family. It was small by US standards: six adults and two kids. But, the time with family is so sweet to us, having missed so much of it.
