HAPPY THANKSGIVING

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.

Kathy,
Your blog is great, and I thank you for sharing it with us. You are right, God is amazing, and we have not even seen what He can accomplish when we totally live for HIM.

From Canada, a Happy Thanksgiving to you, Katt. I said the same on Joy's blog and on my own but am stopping by here, too. With so many American blogging friends now I feel like I should celebrate both Thanksgivings. You'll have to take a peek at mine to get the rest of my "envy" story though. Silly me!

Carol, I don't know what I'm doing wrong because your blog isn't feeding to me. Did you post today?
I'm on my way---to read your blog. Can't wait to hear, "the rest of the story."
Hugs my friend

Hi Katt,

Yes, I posted on the 26th and again today (29th). The RSS feed link is available but unfortunately I don't know enough about these things to know what to tell you about it. :( Sorry.

Hope your Thanksgiving was the best ever, Katt. Can't imagine how wonderful it must be to go outside and enjoy the sun. I can do that here too, but I have to put on my boots, my parka, my scarf, my mitts, my ear muffs. By then I'm too tired to move.

You make me laugh girlfriend. Thanksgiving was great! It has been a little chilly---in the 40's but today is so beautiful---76 degrees right now. I love the sun----all the windows are open in the house---there's a breeze blowing though and it smells so good!
Hugs
Katt
