We won't be sitting across the table today from a few faces in our past. My grandparents, my Mother, but I know they are still with us in my heart. When I woke this morning thinking about all the blessings in my life, looking out the kitchen window, I was reminded of a time many years ago. My bare feet hit the cold floor, as I slid out of the warm bed, following my nose downstairs to where the warm smells of cooking turkey filled the air. My Mother was at the sink, peeling potatoes commenting about Dad out in the cold snowy morning hunting rabbits or squirrel. I knew in just a few hours the house would be full of family members, giving thanks,eating lots of food,sharing stories and loving each other. There are so many things to be thankful for. Today if you have a neighbor, or friend who isn't able to get out, who lives alone, make sure you take an extra plate of turkey to them. Be a blessing in someones life today. And remember what the apostle Paul told us: I Thessalonians 5:16-18 Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. Have a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving. Be safe and know I love you.
