Giving Thanks

fall leaves pathThanksgiving has been a difficult day for me since both our daughters left for college several years ago. My husband and I usually hang out, watch football and make dinner, nothing fancy. This year we will be spending the day with good friends and, although we won’t be all together as a family on this holiday, I remind myself that I still have so much to be thankful for.

I want to take this time to give thanks to all of you for stopping in every day and sharing your thoughts and giving encouragement. Every visit, every comment, truly means so much to me…not only today, but every day.

May your day be filled with good food and good people. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too. I am having a bittersweet day, my first Thanksgiving without my husband. But thankful I have a large family to share the meal with.

      I’m sorry to hear your day was rough but it’s great that your family could be with you.

      I know that everyone is very busy with family and food today so I appreciate you stopping in. It means so much to me.

    Happy Thanksgiving! In Canada, we have our TG in early October which is nice because you get a good break between holiday feasts. We don’t have a big family TG dinner anymore so it was just the three of us, which was fine by me.
    Sorry your girls weren’t able to be home with you. Do they come home for Christmas holidays?

      Thank you Shirlee.
      I wish we had an earlier Thanksgiving like you do in Canada. Having two major holidays in 4 weeks can be rough.
      Since we moved away from our families 20 years ago, we’ve spent many holidays alone, just the four of us. With the girls gone, t’s just not the same. We do get to see them for Christmas this year, we are meeting them in California, and I am very excited!

    K, you certainly do have many friends from your blog, me being one of them, who wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and if you could I would have you and hubby over my house for dinner. It is wonderful that you have friends that can include you both in their family gathering.
    We went to my son, Rich & his wife, Edie’s for dinner and Edie’s parents. My older son is still in W. Virginia working and will be home for a few weeks before Christmas, but not at Christmas. We will just have to celebrate with them a little early. We will then have Christmas dinner at our house with Rich, Edie and maybe even her parents.
    Enjoy the holidays and I’m always looking forward to your projects and quick wit! Stay warm, my friend!

      Awww, you are too sweet MJ. Thanks so much. I have met some truly kind and supportive friends blogging and you are certainly at the top!
      We had a very nice day and my friend’s family was so welcoming and friendly. It was really nice to be with a group on Thanksgiving.

      It sounds like you had a great day with your son and his family. I know you are excited to celebrate with your other son. I guess we just have to make the most of whatever time we get with them.

      Thank you again. I appreciate you stopping by on Thanksgiving to say hello. Hope you are having a relaxing weekend. Now the rush to Christmas begins! Yeehaw! 😉
