Happy Thanksgiving!

A sunny, perfect Thanksgiving Day!

Eagle One, the turkey has landed! Eagle One, I repeat, the turkey has landed! Or… it did this morning anyway. I got up early and went to IKEA (I work there) to help serve food to homeless families from Hope Haven. Many, many IKEA coworkers and managers came in this morning to do the same. We set up the restaurant to provide dinner and… early holiday gifts to all the families that came.

It was an amazing experience being able to do give my time in service to others. I was really moved by all the people who said “Thank you!” to all of us for coming in on a day when most people stay at home with their own families. It was truly humbling… and also one of the best thanksgivings I’ve ever had. I’m excited that IKEA is going to do this again next year. I hope I’m around to be a part of it!

Instead of boring you all with a running commentary on it all, I’m just hoping to put up the pics I was able totals before we got into full swing.
