The stores were certainly packed with last minute shoppers for their Thanksgiving meal and I was one of them. Luckily my daughter works in the nearby town and was able to stop by and pick up a ham for me or we wouldn't be having one. I've learned a valuable lesson....don't wait until the last minute to go shopping for a holiday meal. The shelves were looking pretty bare. Thank goodness we are a large family and everyone shares in the cooking.
I hope each of you enjoy your Thanksgiving day and have found lots of things to be thankful for.
I'm thankful for a loving, caring Heavenly father, parents who show their love in ways they don't even realize, sisters who make me laugh and care beyond measure, a husband that is my very best friend, my son and daughter that have brought me endless joy, a son~in~law and daughter~in~law that continue to bless our home, a grandson that warms my heart like heavenly sunshine, dear friends that offer friendship unconditionally. Oh there is so much more....extended family that are so kind and thoughtful, a warm home, a smile from a stranger, a memory from the past, and the hope of tomorrow. So with all things I have so much to be THANKFUL for!
