This Day

IMG_0035

Every_day_of_Bound South is a thanksgiving. Be it a simple meal, a warm bed, or an uplifting conversation, we can’t help but to give thanks on the road. To all those who have had a hand in any of these daily blessings, thank you. You are what makes each day so special to us.

Today is Thanksgiving, a holiday that reminds us not only to be thankful but to reflect on what we are so thankful for. Although we will not be feasting on turkey, dumplings, and mashed potatoes in North Dakota with family today (how wonderful that would be), we have much to be thankful for, including our health and safety, the stretch of road that has brought us here, the road that lies ahead, and the people that greet us on the road.

So much of what we do everyday revolves around people. Their experiences and knowledge are what makes each waypoint and destination so meaningful. And they are always helpful (thanks to all who have noticed our disorientation and given us direction!).  This is my first Thanksgiving away from family in North Dakota, but I like to think that we can share this day with our Bound South family, a family of kindred character that we’ve been growing since leaving Anchorage.

    Boys,
    This post and your reflection is the perfect birthday present for your mother. Thank you!

    We miss you and are so grateful for each of you and who you are, and how you have shared your heritage of faith, work and play along the road of this adventure. We are also thankful for those who have offered food, home stays, laundry service and showers. May they be blessed in return.

    Wherever you are today…we hope you’re enjoying your Thanksgiving feast!

    Love and hugs,

    Mom, Dad, Marta and Grandpa O.

    Glad everything is going well. Hopefully Mexico offered Thanksgiving feast enough. The family picture is quite nice; I am sure you are looking forward to another.
