When the Boys married with families of their own there was a responsibility to their mate’s family, things sorta slacked off some. My experience has been that the men sort of migrate to their wives families. I understood that because I actually spent more holidays with Sherry’s family than mine.
Pictures are from our last family Thanksgiving Dinner @ Mark’s house. Mark and Sherry cooked, Grandkids brought stuff in. WE had two tables.
After the meal!
I loved it, we have always gotten along great. It was NEVER just the family get together, it was the idea of counting your blessings. They are so many I cannot list them all.
But I will list some:
There is first, the family itself. Thankful.
Health of the entire family. Thankful.
WE have never even come close to being hungry. Thankful.
Good Jobs, fair pay. Very Thankful
Friends? Wow. I am confident we have friends who would come to our aid, in time of need. NO QUESTIONS ASKED. Thankful
Friends? Some we have never met, who have and will, give moral support and prayers, just for the asking.
INTERNET, Motorhome, publishing companies, readers, cars, houses, good roads, grandkids, great grandkids and even grand-dogs.
(Janie at our last Thanksgiving together she got the ham bone)
WE ARE THANKFUL!
For me? It would be impossible to explain how thankful I am for my wife. We went around the world to get here, and she stayed. We finally have everything and more that a 17 year old skinny high school drop out promised.
But she stayed thru some thin times.
YES LORD, I AM THANKFUL.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. We will not have a home cooked meal, we will eat @ the Farm House Restaurant, But I will have memories as I look across the table at my beautiful lady. We will say a prayer for our extended family, and be THANKFUL FOR ANOTHER YEAR TOGETHER.
I also am very thankful for everyone who follows or reads my drivel, you are the best.
