Reflections and a Happy Thanksgiving
I reflect on the past year and what we are thankful for.
This will be the first Thanksgiving that we will not celebrate with my dear dad that passed away this past Spring. He loved a good plate of stuffing and fresh turkey and leftovers for the next day.
We still will spend our feast with dear family and friends that are our family and enjoy the fact that we will be together once again as we have celebrated for longer than I can remember.

Once again we are all fortunate that we have our health and good fortune to be together and will eat turkey and fixings until we can hardly move, it's the gathering that counts even more than the turkey.
WISHING EVERYONE A HAPPY HEALTHY HOLIDAY SEASON FILLED WITH GOOD HEALTH AND HAPPINESS FOR THE COMING YEAR!!!
