Hello Friends, 

Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away and I can hardly wait. I think this is the most precious day for family and friends second only to Christmas the birth of our savior. The house will be full of the aroma of the turkey, pies and casseroles baking. 

It is always warm and cozy as the family files in, all full of chatter and anticipation of a great meal and loving company. The Lord has blessed my family greatly and I enjoy this day so very much.

The women will be preparing dishes and setting the tables, (I know a bit old fashion but it works for us) the men are gathering where they hope they are unnoticed. And the grandkids are greeting and playing. It is a very busy day for the family but it is also the most loving happy day of the year for me. 

We pull out all the holiday recipes that have been staples in the family. My pumpkin pie, my youngest daughter has the pecan pie and the oldest girl does wonderful vegetable casseroles. As the turkey is browning and the potatoes are cooking we gals get to do some female chatting. 

Than as we are all joined at the table the men join in. We eat way too much, reminisce the families earlier days and make memories for the grandchildren. Yes Thanksgiving is the day to give thanks for all the Lord has given to us. But it is only one day in the year to give thanks.

I pray you all have a wonderful, love filled day also.  

Linda
