Thanksgiving Dilemmas

Just look at this pie. Perfection. This was my goal tonight but I didn't get that far. Tomorrow night is the Price Thanksgiving at our house and I thought I would bake Southern Living's BEAUTIMOUS Sweet Potato Pie with Marshmallow Topping. I didn't have any pie weights and it ended up falling in! EEK! I had to start over and am now waiting on the 2nd crust and filling to turn out. Maybe it will! This small "dilemma" made me think of "Stephanie" on Full House when she ruined "Mom's Picture Perfect Pumpkin Pie" for Thanksgiving. Bless her little heart!
You know, I think that the reason why some of these little errors happen is maybe we fret too much. Maybe we think and worry about how everything has to be picture perfect. Things happen, y'all. I am telling myself this too! Lets focus more on what we have in our lives, rather than if a turkey will turn out. I mean, it won't be any fun if a dish may be messed up or ruined, but enjoy family, friends, and God's love this Thanksgiving! P. S. Maybe my pie will turn out after all! HA!

The joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10

I bet it tastes just as delicious picture perfect or not too !
My grandmother use to get upset when her lasgna all feel apart when serving it - then she'd laugh and say, we'll you have to mess it up to eat it anyway !

Have a blessed thanksgiving !
