I'll be having Thanksgiving at my house for just my little family. It's so hard to take 3 little kids to a house full of grown-ups so we decided to just stay here where they can play and we can build a gingerbread village. I've already made 2 pumpkin pies and have everything ready for the stuffing. The turkey is thawed and ready for the oven. We'll have cranberry relish, green beans, mashed potatoes and Allison is bringing dirty rice. Sounds like a big lunch!
Hope it's a great Thanksgiving for everyone. I have so many things for which to be grateful. It's been a difficult year but I've been blessed by so many family and friends who have been there for me. I'm so thankful for my wonderful daughter Allison, son-in-law John, & those 3 dear g'children. Sister Judy who never fails to call and check on me. I'm thankful for Brenda and Jane who are always there for me. For Susan and Mike who are so supportive and have truly been a God-send this year. There are so many others who call and ask me to dinner (Cathy, Don, & Linda) and sweet nephew Michael who calls me for no reason but just to check. All the women at Leola's who have been such good friends and have kept me challenged and excited about life. There are so many more but since they don't read my blog they won't know I didn't mention them by name. I'm also thankful for all of you who have been such a support to me and for keeping me company when I was feeling lonely.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
