Thanksgiving and Christmas decor...

Right before we were to sit down for our Thanksgiving dinner, the missionaries had me come sit on the couch, and one by one they came in through the front door, handed me a rose, and told me what they were thankful for. The last missionary to come in, gave me the vase, with a card that said 'Thank you for all you do, we love you.'

This was such a wonderful thing for them to do for me. I cried and cried. I love my family so much, and am so thankful for them. I realized tonight how much I love these missionaries, and how I am so thankful for them too.

I have details of your line back through your American ancestors to Woodstock & Enstone in Oxfordshire, England.
