I Am Thankful...

We leave early tomorrow morning for southern CALI to spend Thanksgiving at my oldest daughter's home. We normally spend it with my Mom and siblings, or we travel from my brother's house to my daughter's house to squeeze in two visits, or we stay in Nevada and celebrate with my husband's two sons and their families.this year, it is CALI's turn, but we are slowing down and only going to one house.

My oldest daughter will cook for my youngest daughter, newest grandson, her boyfriend, her husband and two boys, her husband's parents and us.  We will get to enjoy a small gathering and more time with the grand sons... We will  be back home on Sunday... Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, dear friends...

I am thankful
for my health,
my husband,
my children,
my grand children.

I am thankful
for my Dad and Mom
my four brothers
and my sister.

I am thankful
for each and every one
of you
dear blogging buddies
who listen
who support
who share
laughter and tears.
without whom,
I would have
many lonely days.

I am thankful
to live
in these United States,
for our
many freedoms;
all the challenges
our country
now face.

I am thankful
for the food
on the table,
the roof over
our heads...
for the Blessing
of spending time
showing love
with my family
and friends.
