Thanksgiving Blessings


November 22, 2007

Thanksgiving Blessings,
    I am back from El Salvador and will be leaving for Nigeria in less than two weeks.  The mission trip to El Salvador was fulfilling.  The team I went with was
wonderful.  Each and every person had their own gift to give.  I felt like I was on a "first class" missionary trip as I had all the amenities and more. There was alot of prayer time and mass was offered everyday which was a gift to me. I visited with my children which was bitter sweet as I will be leaving them for a time. They are all doing well and the bond of love we have for each other will carry me through while I am gone.

    I am now getting ready to return to Nigeria.  I will be flying back with Father Paul, an unexpected surprise from God!  We have alot of catching up to do and the airtime will give us ample opportunity to share.  We talk frequently on the phone or via e-mail but it is not as good as in person.  I feel the same about all of you.  Oh how I would like time with each of you as you are so special to me. 
    One of the traditions at Thanksgiving we incorporated as a family when my children were growing up was that at the dinner table there would be cards decorated by my children that had written on them "this Thanksgiving I thank God for......  Each person who shared dinner with us would pick a name from a basket and fill in the card. It was I time to reflect on the gift of that person and to share with them your feelings before we ate.  Something that should be done
more frequently throughout the year. So to you my dear family and friends I would like to say "this Thanksgiving I thank God for all of you, for without your prayers, love and compassion for the people I live with in Nigeria, this mission would not be possible."  Alone I can do little, but through the grace of God and your donations and prayers, we can make a difference in the lives of the poor, which makes our lives richer.  My prayers for you this Thanksgiving is that your
hearts be full of love and joy.  I miss you all and hold you close to my heart and prayers. God Bless You and your families.

All my love-which is a portion of God's love,
