Thanksgiving!

 1 Bless the LORD, O my soul;
         And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul,
         And forget not all His benefits:
 3 Who forgives all your iniquities,
         Who heals all your diseases,
 4 Who redeems your life from destruction,
         Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
         So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103:1-5)





So today was Thanksgiving and we had a great day with the family. We went to my sister's house and ate around 12:30. Lots of good food!  My plate looked something like this





though I got this picture off Google Images and now that I think about it, I don't remember if I ate any meat.  I really prefer carbs like potatoes and mac and cheese and vegetables and rolls and stuffing and ... well, yes, I did get full.  :-)

We spent some time looking through the ads and my sister and her husband may head out around midnight for a few of the sales. Some people just like the excitement of shopping and crowds, I reckon!

Food and materialism aside, this is Thanksgiving so I want to also say this:

I am so thankful to God for all the blessings He has given me -- a wonderful family, sweet friends and just so many things that I too often take for granted!  I want to especially mention how thankful I am that YOU are part of my life. I truly enjoy all the wonderful people I've met through blogging.  I've learned a lot from you and I appreciate your willingness to share a bit of your time and words of wisdom and even friendship with me.  


Thank you!
