Today is the day we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the US, or at least the day many people celebrate it. It’s actually not uncommon to celebrate this holiday on the days leading up to or the days after. For us, we’re driving today — all the way back to Ohio.
There was snow last night, so the roads are not dry. Thankfully we live in the age of highways, salt, and road crews.

We’re looking forward to lots of delicious food and lots of great time with family. Here’s hoping you have a wonderful weekend filled with delicious things and family/friends!

    Susy, our snow all melted here but I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of it. Since I’ve not been caught up in the preparation of Thanksgiving dinner for years, I’ve had more time to reflect on just how blessed I am. Even though we have some major problems in this country, it’s still a country that has many things to be thankful for. As I sit around the table and listen to conversation and hear the laughter with family and friends, I become a humble man and thank God just for that alone. To spend time over a lavish meal with those you love and cherish is the best Thanksgiving blessing ever.

    Have a great Thanksgiving.
