Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving!

This is the best time of the year! We get a little nostalgic and we recall memories from Thanksgiving's past! I can remember my parents making the stuffing and poking it in
that big ole' bird! We always had a huge turkey! I loved the aroma from all the good stuff
being cooked! There was always a debate about how long to cook the bird to make sure it
was cooked to perfection. Turkey and stuffing! Mother's great turkey gravy. Yummy! Can't wait to get to this years feast! Besides the turkey and stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, orange cranberry relish, cole slaw, and Grandma's fresh baked yeast rolls...lots of butter melted on them. For desert a lovely pumpkin pie, apple pie, a cake of some kind, icecream, and other delectable sweets brought by family members. Gallons of sweet icetea and later coffee with desert. Does all this sound too good? We are very fortunate to be able to sit
down at our tables and partake of this feast. Be thankful and remember those who are not
so fortunate. Be thankful for your family, those who are present and those who are no longer
with us, tell them how much you love them! Give them all a big hug!
Smiles and Blessings! and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
