I have many things to be thankful for this year. Another Thanksgiving day to think of our blessings and hopefully everyone had time to spend with family and friends. We had a nice gathering of kiddos and Grandkiddos and even boyfriends of Grandkiddos! I'm so grateful for my family and sure wish I could have been with my Mom today and my sister too. I have siblings scattered over north and south and would love to be with them also but I keep them in my thoughts and my heart. 3 out of our 4 sons were here today and I talked with Craig this evening. We did the usual celebrating today. We started off with the Macy's Thanksgiving parade on TV as Jack and I got the house ready for the gang. I had made 95% of the dinner earlier in the week. Pies and sides done and the turkey cooked Wednesday night. That way all we had to do was carve it up and keep it in the roaster so the oven was free to cook the remainder of the feast.
