Wow! The Thanksgiving holiday is so very appropriately named ... what a wonderful way to give thanks for each and every blessing life has provided.
Last week's Thanksgiving Day feast was cooked, served, eaten and leftovers taken home by dozens of family members and friends at our host's and hostess's home, including us. Kenny and April were wonderful hosts; the food was exceptional and plentiful, the leftovers were enjoyed and didn't last long. Rick and I had a great time and I think I gained about five pounds.
What a great time! I met more of both of their friends and relatives; it turned out that two sweet cousins had years ago let us arrange a sale of some of their mid-1800s furniture. I kept looking at them, innately knowing that we had crossed paths before.
We enjoyed ourselves so much at this event, that I probably shouldn't eat for another week or two. Thanks to these two friends who included us in their Thanksgiving plans and for their generous spirits. (No Publix turkey this year!)
Rick and I truly have been blessed with friendship. Like my old Girl Scout song, 'Make new friends, but keep the old; one is silver and the other gold!'
