Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

Praying that each of you has a happy and wonderfully "thankful" Thanksgiving with your families and loved ones. All our children and grandchildren will be with us to celebrate God's goodness to us as we love and encourage each other. I have been so busy with my school work that I have had little time to blog lately. But, I am ALMOST DONE!!!!. Then I will begin an internship program for a couple of months before employment. I am thankful that this old cerebelum (brain) of mine has been able to learn some new things!! ha.
Doesn't this turkey look appetizing?? Well, not really, but I can assure you it is delicious!! My DH smoked our turkey last weekend and cut it all off to freeze for Thursday. I did not want to spend my afternoon on Thursday "picking the turkey"!! I have broth saved for the gravy and I think it will be easy to put it all together.

It's beginning to look a lot like.............

Christmas!!!! Yes, I have a little bit of a head start with the diningroom Christmas trees. They are mostly decorated with stars I have collected through the years. I always add a few new ones every year. To finish, I add cobalt blue bulbs to tie in with all the blue and white in the diningroom.

A peak!! I will show you more later!! May all of you have a wonderful time during this special holiday in our country. I'm so thankful that we decided many years ago that a special day dedicated to "the giving of Thanks" was needed!!! We can take nothing for granted. We must concentrate on what we HAVE and not on what we DON'T HAVE!! And.................we have sooooo much, don't we?
Blessings and Love to each of you, Linda
