Happy Thanksgiving!

Besides preparing and eating lots of delicious food, this is the day to give thanks.

We who live in this country have so much to give thanks for. Yes, there are problems, but we have the liberty to complain about the problems in so many forums and except for irritating people who might think differently, no one is going to come looking for us.

On a personal level, I'm thankful for each and everyone of my children, their spouses and all of their offspring. Each one has brought me and my husband great joy over the years.

I'm thankful that I have a personal belief in God and I can worship how I wish. And I'm thankful that He listens and answers my prayers. (Sometimes he says no, and other times, it's not yet, but oh, so many times, a miracle is given.)

I'm thankful for this day that I can spend with some of my family and enjoy their company. I'm thankful for the youngsters who still want to play games with their great-grandma.

I'm thankful for the granddaughter who looked forward to being home once again with us to celebrate Thanksgiving.

And I'm thankful for the little one who will be spending her Thanksgiving with us.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who read my blog today and other days.

What are you thankful for today?

Thanksgiving in 2011 when we went to Camarillo and had dinner with youngest daughter's family, oldest daughter and some granddaughters and greats.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your family, Marilyn. I'm thankful that I am spending Thanksgiving with my entire immediate family - all in the same country and same state even, simultaneously, for the first time in 37 years!
Hi, Kate Eileen, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
