{ Thanksgiving }
One of my favorite holidays of the year....a holiday that takes me way back to when I was just a little girl.   I can remember my mother and grandmother baking and preparing a little at a time several days in advance, so we could all be together on Thanksgiving Day without anybody spending the day in the kitchen.  It was a time when our whole extended family would get together....we knew we could count on lots of cousins (some of them we hadn't seen all year) to play with.  It was so wonderful to get out and rake big piles of leaves ( and of course jump in them ) and to have our first real break from school....the long weekend when we had time for a sleepover or two.  I am so thankful for all the memories I have of growing up with so much love in our family.  Although my grandparents have gone on now, I am so blessed to still have my parents, siblings, lots of friends, and of course my own family, too!!!  How does a girl get so lucky?   Now, as I go about each day trying to raise my children and teach them about what really matters in life,  I hope they will be able to look back and have lots of good memories, especially of the holidays!!!  Wishing each and every one of you a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!!! .....  and "thank you" for taking the time to visit us here on the blog :)


  1. Happy Thanksgiving!
    It would be easy to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. But that would seem superficial given all the suffering in this world. Hunger, poverty, homelessness, unrest in the Middle East, and the destruction of Hurricane Sandy…we could go on and on.

    But we believe that no matter our circumstances each and every one of us has something to be thankful for…something to hang on to no matter how difficult things might seem.

    It might be something as small as the grip of an infant upon our finger or a warm smile from a total stranger. Or it might be something as momentous as news that cancer is in remission. There is always something that keeps us going…something to be thankful for.

    So let us give thanks for that “something”… that wonderful “something” that brightens our lives and helps us through the day. God Bless you
