It is once again time for Thanksgiving, and we have a lot to be thankful for, even though things have happened this past year that have set a lot of people back, there are still things mixed in that we have to be happy about.
For myself the biggest setback was when I had my heart attack, this was a scary time for me and I am truly thankful for the technology and the people who are smart enough to use that technology which saved my life, so for me I am thankful for being alive today.
I am thankful that we got to make a trip back to South Carolina a few months ago, it has been a little over eight years since I have seen my Parents and siblings, there has been a whole slew of grand nieces and nephews born since our last trip, and I am thankful that my nieces and nephews talked to their children about us enough that you would have thought these kids knew us all along, I was truly thankful for the hugs that let me know that I was indeed home again.
I am thankful that I got my blog back up and running, and thankful for the friends that accepted me back into the fold so to say by following along again, setbacks in life may limit our posts at times but setbacks do not take away your true friends, and I am thankful for each and every one of you.
I am thankful for my family, my wife, children, and our grandson Benjamin, I have a never ending supply of writing material coming my way just from him, and even though some of the family stories should not be repeated, some just have to be repeated because it would be a shame to keep those stories hidden.
The turkey dinner is ready and waiting for the small gathering we are having at our home, Cindy is freaking out and worrying over all of the small details, the giblets and neck were removed beforehand rather than being cooked inside the bird paper package and all, and hopefully the cranberry sauce will be placed on the table before the meal rather than remembered after the dishes are done, at any rate everything is going to be just fine, and I am thankful for that.
We want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, and also want you to remember that even though a lot of bad things may be going on around us, there are always many good things to be thankful for.
Have you ever found the giblets after the turkey was cooked, or forgotten the cranberry sauce in the refrigerator?
