(belatedly) giving thanks
However, that hasn't necessarily meant that i've been able to relax since arriving here. This is partly due to lingering work matters, but also due to the fact that the backlog of work that i've had to do up to this point has meant that i've not had sufficient time to plan for the holiday itself, such that i've found myself in the not-unusual predicament of planning not more than a day in advance, which of course makes trying to relax somewhat difficult.
Over the past few days though i've had some respite since i'm spending Thanksgiving with some relatives, and hence have not had to make any concrete plans. However, there's still more than half of the trip left to make plans for.
This really does bring home the point for me that by nature i'm really not an efficient worker. At the same time though, it does make me thankful that in spite of that i'm able to get things done sufficiently, by God's grace. His grace indeed is sufficient.
