happy thanksgiving

thanksgiving day is tomorrow and we are having family and friends over from both far and near. hubby is preparing a dish or two.  it is very easy for him to get carried away in the kitchen as he loves to cook so i always remind him that it is potluck; friends are bringing their favorite dish, too.

we will miss our daughter and son-in-law who are celebrating thanksgiving in their new home.  but we will join them for christmas which we are all very much looking forward to.  i may be counting the days now but i’m relishing each holiday.  tomorrow, we will enjoy thanksgiving day.

it will be a quiet and intimate gathering, ever grateful as we reflect on God’s goodness and providence.  his blessings abound.  his love endures forever.  and for those who are mourning, we will keep them in our prayers and continue to hope for love and peace.

wishing you and your loved ones happy thanksgiving!

    in Italia non abbiamo la festa del ringraziamento e i poveri tacchini se la possono prendere comoda prima di essere cucinati! Fosse per me non sarebbero mai cucinati ,io voglio troppo bene agli animali, uffi! capisco che la vostra è una stupenda ricorrenza e ti auguro che tu l’abbia potuta trascorrere in letizia e serenità
    un amichevole abbraccio!
