Happy Thanksgiving

 

Mum_Yellows

Wishing everyone a Blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours. Everyone be safe if you are traveling and enjoy your families or just that day off to relax.

Since we are a small family these days we do not have tables laid for feasting but go out for Dinner now.
I am thankful for our small family, our health, love, friends and the many blessings God has bestowed upon us throughout the years.

I am thankful to be born in a country with brave men and women and the freedoms that they fight for not only for our country but for others as well. For the freedoms we have that others throughout the world are fighting for even now. The freedom to live without the tyranny and with freedom of religion.
While in this country that freedom lets people strike and set down to get across points that even I cannot figure out what in the world they are asking for. LOL!

Chrysanthemums_White I am thankful for the everyday blessings that happen sometimes even unnoticed as I go about my day. Sometimes the everyday blessings are those that are most important.

I am also thankful for all the friendships that have came to me from you my fellow bloggers whom I would not have known otherwise. Blessings to you all.

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!

And since I cannot be too serious without adding something
to laugh about, I agree with Maxine.

I do love Maxine now. Happy Thanksgiving Lona. We do have a lot to be thankful for.

I am cooking but it may only be my friend and son join me. Which is fine. Mom may come over but she and my sis are talking about going to the indian pow-pow this year on Thanksgiving. It's an annual thing that has taken place for many years. My daughter is expected to come down on Saturday for the day so I am excited to see the grands and daughter.

I hope you have a great family gathering.

Around here we really like Stouffer's stuffing. ;) Seriously, I don't think we could make one that's better.

Happy Thanksgiving!
