Then we talked about how many things we have to be thankful for. I was reminded of this hand painted German plaque that was my grandmothers. It is made from very thin wood and has been painted in oil paint. Maybe someone can help with the exact translation. My German is a bit lacking. Roughly translated it says
Not even a drop drinks the chick,
until it lifts its head to heaven and gives thanks.
I am so thankful today for my family. I love them dearly. My siblings, my nieces and nephews, my children and especially my husband. Tonight we will have a small family gathering. Not everyone will come but those that don't will be missed. I'm looking so forward to it. I am off to bake a few batches of Paska. I hope you have a wonderful day my friends.
