JUST ABOUT TODAY IN MY LIFE- Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday!  It's all about family, and what food to bring.  There are no presents to wonder about, it's all about eating and being thankful!

Ah, family.  During the year, do you remember the moments of tension.  Such as when Aunt Sally walks in, then you remember, "Oh dear"! Or Uncle John, "Let me head to the other room." I find that I look forward to each year.  I forget about the dysfunctional parts until we're driving there or as up above, they arrive.  I still would go. There's something about getting together with family that's reassuring.  I find my roots there. Here's some things I'm thankful for:

1.  That I have the ability to worship God.
2.  That I have the most wonderful daughter in the world
3.  That I have the best grandchildren, who are healthy and looking forward to me coming out for Christmas.
4.  That I have family to share Thanksgiving with.
5.  That I have a job.
6.  That I have food to put on the table.
7.  That I have my health.
8.  That I have people serving in the military and away from home this Thanksgiving, to guarantee my        .
9.  That all my family is healthy and safely at their destinations.
10.That I can post to this blog and say what I mean and mean what I say!
