Tell your son, whose coming home from Iraq, that we really appreciate his service to our country. I will continue to pray for him and all the other service men & women.
It is too bad some people don't realize how much their mother does for them until she is gone. No one will ever love you as much as your mother.
This will be the first Thanksgiving without my mother. I know she is in a better place, pain free and at peace. But, it is still hard to believe she is not here.
Thanks be to God for blessing my husband and me with a happy marriage, good health and for my childrens' spouses, who are happy, well-adjusted and excellent parents to my grandchildren.
Give your elderly neighbors a Publix gift card....that way they can buy what they want and it is a great feeling to not spend 'real money' to get groceries.
My family from Ohio is due to arrive around 2 PM. My husband's family arrived at the airport from Seattle this morning. My husband picked them up. We are going to have a packed house for Thanksgiving. I'm glad everyone likes each other.
We are having 2 Thanksgivings this year. Wednesday we are having it at our house so that my oldest son could come on his only day off. Thanksgiving Day we will be off to our youngest son and his family. The best of both worlds. Thank you Jesus.
For your elderly neighbors, call ahead of time and deliver a huge family meall that you share with them. Then, give them a coupon book (you make it) for help with common tasks. They will love it.
When I picked up our son from college this morning I was telling him the Thanksgiving Day menu. All of a sudden he said " Ah MOMM ". I asked him what was wrong. He said " We're not having our Jello fruit salad ?" I ask him if he wanted some (and this is what made me smile). He said " Mom , this is Thanksgiving. We HAVE to have Jello fruit salad." I gladly pulled into the Publix's parking lot. Smiling all the way.
Happiness is selling our heritage turkeys, that we raised this year, to a man that is a chef in Atlanta. We made more than we ever thought we could. He got 10 truly large organic turkeys. We were both very happy.
We always split the holiday -- Thanksgiving with my family -- Christmas with the inlaws.
My horses have the thickest winter coats this year. They look so cute running around the paddock.
