Dear Friends,


As one of the most prominent holidays in the US, Thanksgiving is a special day to give thanks for the good things in our lives, and celebrating Thanksgiving can be done in many different ways and forms.



Please take the time to share with all of us how you plan to celebrate Thanksgiving and what you are thankful for this year?



I wish you peace and blessings that abound this Thanksgiving,



Kitt

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

As for me it will actually not be anything special this year. My Mom passed this year, my kids have all moved far away, so it will just be hubby and I. I am actually not going to be making a turkey this year, I learned a really good chicken soup recipe from my SIL in Guadalajara, so I am going to make that.

I do have alot to be thankful for though! My Crohns is in remission, anxiety under control, and shhh I am actually feeling pretty good these days! I have my good friend Kitt who is always there for me, and most importantly I have the love of the most amazing husband in the world. Things are pretty good and for that I am thankful!

Hugs

Thanks Nanners,


My husband is a hunter and he will be getting home Wednesday evening so Thursday around 11:30 we will be taking 2 of our grandaughters and our daughter out for a turkey dinner.



Our oldest son lives far away and our youngest is going to the other side of the family, his wife's side which is OK.



I lost a brother and sister this spring so I will be offering prayers for their families as they spend thier first major holiday without their Mom or their Dad.



Prayers for you too Nanners. Thanksgiving is for remembering the good and holding onto memories of the ones we love.



Sending you warmest thoughts and friendliest wishes for a very Happy Thanksgiving.



Gentle Hugs

All the best to you both.

I have a lot to be thankful for.  My kids are healthy, my husband is awesome, and my parents and my siblings are all healthy too (no matter how annoying they may be!  Haha.)

I don't even like turkey dinner, but I am thankful that I have the luxury of turning down a hot meal just because I don't like it.  I am thankful that I don't have to struggle to feed myself and my family.

I am thankful that I live in a safe place and that I have people in my life who are thankful for me.

I am inviting all to share a bit of their Thanksgiving plans...........and it does not have to be anything elaborate. Just talk with us as we all care about each other.

I'm thankful for my family and my HW family. This is the first major holiday since Mom passed, it's going to be difficult.
