Turkey Time!..and EOT update
Thanksgiving has almost arrived and I am so thrilled. I hope you have some exciting plans for Thanksgiving Day and the weekend ahead. I love this time of year! It feels so great to be at home with family and friends. My Thanksgiving break began last Friday after my classes were completed. After 3 and a half hours of driving I made it home just in time to see the community musical 7 Brides for 7 Brothers in Perham. The cast did a fabulous job. It was a great way to start my Thanksgiving season at home. These last few days I have been enjoying catching up with my loved ones and getting some much-needed extra sleep.
On Friday I will be participating in the Parade of Lights in Perham. I’m looking forward to seeing the streets of Perham lit up for the Christmas Season. I have participated in this parade before and have always enjoyed the thrill it brings. I’ll be sure to fill all of you in with pictures and a blog story!
I’m posting my EOT article a little bit earlier this week. I’m sorry I haven’t shared the last few ones on the blog. My computer didn’t save some of them properly. However, I do want to include last weeks for you as I had that one on file. I continue to write these articles weekly. It’s been such a fun way to stay in touch with my community while I attend school at Jamestown College. Enjoy! I hope you take them to heart.
Greetings friends, (last week)
Wow, Perham has had some exciting news these past few weeks with Football doing so well, Cross-country taking 2nd place at state, and a successful Section meet for the Girls Swim Team! How exciting for all the participants and for their supporters. Watching everyone succeed has been a wonderful reminder that Perham is indeed the School of Champions. I so believe in that statement.
I want to take a minute to highlight another program at Perham High School. The Community Musical will be presenting “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” this weekend. This family friendly event will be taking place at the Perham High School Auditorium on Friday at 7:30 p.m., and will continue with two Sunday performances at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. I would definitely take the opportunity to see this fine show and witness the talent in our community.
Life at Jamestown College has been great. Last weekend I finished up with “Titanic” the musical and was so ecstatic to have visitors from home see the show. I’m staying busy practicing and studying, as first semester is almost complete. I have an entire week for Thanksgiving break and it will begin at Friday evenings’ performance of the musical. I hope to see some of you as I am out and about in Perham. I can’t wait. Blessings to you!
Hello! (Thanksgiving week!)
Its Turkey Time everyone! Oh my goodness, I can hardly believe we are already to Thanksgiving. I absolutely love this time of year as it presents many opportunities to spend time with friends, family, and simply be thankful.
I listened to a song this past week entitled “Thankful” and had to share it. “So for tonight we pray for, what we still can’t see, it’s up to us to be the change, and even though we all can still do more, there’s so much to be thankful for.” This time of year is an exciting time for many. Yet for some, this season may be a time of hurt, trial, or pain. My hope is Thanksgiving is a time of celebration for you. No matter what season of life we find ourselves in, may we find ways to be thankful. May we appreciate the snow that falls, the smiles we encounter, the conversations with our loved ones, the hugs we feel, the opportunity to pursue our passions, and the times of celebration. Today and throughout this weekend I challenge you to reflect upon what you are thankful for, things you couldn’t live without. Promote a thankful attitude in your heart and don’t be afraid to share what and who you are thankful for with others.
I arrived in Perham last weekend right in time to catch Friday’s show of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Congratulations to all who were involved and for sharing your talents! The energy and charisma on stage was fantastic. I was beaming and laughing the entire time. I’ve had an incredible time this past week visiting with many of you and enjoyed the time with my family. I am so thankful for our community and all of you who live in it. Blessings and much love in our season of Thanksgiving.
