I love Thanksgiving. There are lots of fond memories I have of Thanksgivings past, and none of them have anything to do with what we ate. It was the people with whom we shared these times that mattered. Make sure you cherish the day with those you love- it may be the last this side of Heaven.
A strange T-day memory and tradition I am trying to continue- watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I remember watching this after our all-church Thanksgiving dinner, held at our house. I didn’t even have to get on a waiting list for it at our library, so I’m guessing that this tradition will be uniquely mine.
The above photos were taken on a Thanksgiving we shared with friends of our family. Anybody in my family know what year? I’m thinking ’96. Anyway, the real reason I’m posting these pictures is to ask you: should I cut my hair like this again? (Where am I? No, I’m not the one in the Native American headdress, or the perm on steroids. I’ve got the napkin tucked in my collar.) It is my favorite hairstyle, but short cuts are hard for me to maintain at this season of life. I’ve been pleased with my Rapunzel locks for way longer than I thought I would, and am just now having thoughts about cutting it. So I know this isn’t just a passing whim. We get to play Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus in our church’s Christmas production, so I’ll likely keep the long hair at least until that is over. Let me know what you think.
