Thanksgiving, Friendly Persuasion, and an Angel Entry

Don't you just love Thanksgiving? There's nothing like eating turkey until your eyes bulge, watching football until you fall asleep, and then waking up for a slice of pumpkin pie. We have a tradition in my house of watching the movie Friendly Persuasion with Gary Cooper, Dorothy McQuire and Anthony Perkins. It's excellent! Here's a small clip.

Don't forget to enter An Angel in Your Life Contest. Just write an experience where someone has been an angel in your life and email it to me ( The winner will receive a $25. gift certificate at Seagull Book or Deseret Book and so will the angel in your life. The deadline is December 15th.

Here's another entry for you to read. (The names have been changed.)

Sally has been my angel. She is the kindest person I have ever met and she always knows how to make me smile. One time that sticks out though is when we were in school and I had done really bad on a test which I thought I had done really good on. I was shocked at my score and totally distraught over it. I couldn't tell my family how bad I had done but I saw Sally that night and I told her everything. She reassured me that everything was okay and just made me feel better. She rescued me that night. I needed to tell someone and she was there for me. She's an awesome person.

Thanks for this contest and the opportunity to share my story of my angel.
