Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

I didn't think that we were going to have anyone over this year for Thanksgiving, but I am thankful that we get to spend it with another family!

Great to hear from you!

I love your turkey!!

I still have to decide what I'm making for thanksgiving. Yikes!!

At least we've bought the turkey.

This is my first time actually doing thanksgiving by myself. A sweet older sister in the church will be helping me. We've invited others to come too. Not sure who will show. I've decided to do it at my moms house since she actually has a kitchen. :-) They will be out of town, but thankfully she doesn't mind me messing up her kitchen.

Hope you have a wonderful day of thanks!!
