He sprang from bed, bright and early! There's nothing he loves more than a race!
Just kidding. Kris runs in Thanksgiving races only because I love to run them. It's one of my most favorite traditions. We've run them in several states over many years.
I'd gotten the children ready and we were heading out of the house. The car was warming up. We were leaving at 7:45 a.m. and I assumed Kris would make it home in time.
Then he called. As I moved to answer it, I steeled myself against bad news. I figured I could take the three of them anyway without him - it just wouldn't be as much fun.
"Are you in the car?" he asked.
"Not quite. Just heading out. Why?"
"My truck won't start. I'll just walk home."
He did, and we left only 5 minutes later than we planned.
So, let's add that to the list of things I'm thankful for - that we live within walking distance of the barn!
