Thanksgiving



I think I have posted this before, but am gonna give another stab at it. At thanksgiving dinner, just before the prayers, everyone at the table goes around the table and says what they are thankful for. It is always funny to hear what the children have to say. And sometimes quite amusing what the adults add! One of the best, the year after my mom died. It was the most tear filled and inspirational. Mostly it was confirming us all as a family during that difficult time.





I don't guess we will be doing that tomorrow, as am going to my friends for turkey, but me and dau#1 will some time tomorrow.

Here goes a short list:

THE HOUSE SOLD signed sealed delivered! Yeah!

I have a great bunch of coconuts er I mean family & friends who have held me up since the hubby died.
I have my health
I have 2 wonderful daughters who bless me daily
I have the best grandchildren in the whole world, and as Danny says "I love more than they love me, this big, bigger than the universe!"
and of course I have an indescribable list of blog friends!

What a heartwarming list of things you are thankful for. We all need to tick the things we are thankful for everyday and not just on Thanksgiving.

Have a very happy Thanksgiving. :)

That's a wonderful tradition and I think it's great you can remember what you are thankful for with all you've been through this year.
