Happy and most blessed Thanksgiving to all! I hope your

pies turn out just like you want them and the white meat isn’t

dry, but more importantly, I hope you find a way to express

your gratitude to God for I believe we all have reasons to be

thankful. What a blessing we receive when we learn to live

with a sense of gratitude to God and others!

This is a special Thanksgiving for my family and me because

our newest grandson was born on Monday. Drew Obie

Crawford was born in Denton at 7:04 and weighs 8lbs. 8oz.

and measures 19 ó”.

Our daughter has had both her babies at a birthing center

where the whole family is invited to be part of the labor and

birth. I’m so thankful to be able to be there to help and

encourage throughout whole process. Everyone had a job to

do and treated each other with love and kindness. It was

hard and stressful, but we all got to share the experience of

seeing Drew take his first breath. We’re talking real life here- painful,

scary, hard work, and totally worth it. I was so

grateful when Drew was finally born, in a strong voice I said,

“Praise God from whom all blessings flow!” When I looked

over at my husband I saw the tears in his eyes. It was such a

special moment I hope one I never forget. Yes, it’s a special

Thanksgiving for us! Praise God from whom all blessings

flow!

In Christ's love,

Cynthia
