A Blessed Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to write a little about the blessings of my 2009 Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful day! Don't get me wrong, it is a lot of work, but wouldn't be Thanksgiving without that. Over the last few years, our Thanksgivings have rather gone through some transformations. Once the birdies fly the nest, things get interesting, don't they? Two years ago, our youngest daughter was married 4 days before Thanksgiving, so she was away on her honeymoon, so we traveled to our oldest daughter's house for Thanksgiving after having a early Thanksgiving with my husbands side of the family the day before so we could have dinner with his sister, who came from Houston to attend the wedding. Last year, we had some sickness go through the family, so the holidays were yet again a little different. We went to my nephew's house for Thanksgiving Day, and we ended up having Thanksgiving over a week late with our immediate family!
This year,we had such a wonderful day, all my kids, their spouse/spouse to be and my little JR (where he is, is where I am going for the holidays!). What I love, is how we all get along so well- the kids, the inlaws, all JR's grandparents! We had a blast. The families have gotten so big, that we will not ever get to be with everyone, but we have all split off to enjoy our own Thanksgivings! We occasionally do early celebrations to "get everyone in"! Why limit the holdiday to just a day, right?
There is always so much to be thankful for faith, family, friends, a home, food, our jobs, our health. Hope everyone had a wonderful day!
Praise God from whom all blessings flow, Praise Him all creatures here below, Praise Him Above Ye Heavenly Host, Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen
