This being Thanksgiving, there wasn’t much traffic on the roads. I glory in the change of scenery and the warmth. This is the first Thanksgiving ever where I wore short sleeves and shorts to dinner!
The thing I’m most thankful for today is getting to spend Thanksgiving with family. My cousin, Steve, and his family live in Orlando, about a forty-five-minute drive from our campsite. I remember last Thanksgiving when we were setting up for opening day at the Christmas tree lot. That’s not a good way to spend a holiday that is supposed to bring families together.
We had a wonderful evening of fellowship with them. We figured out that the last time I saw them was probably at my grandmother’s funeral in 1997. Steve and my son, Jamey, set up a Skype video chat so I could see my family back home and they could talk with Steve and Bernice as well as Mark and me.
Yesterday I asked you to tell me what you’re thankful for today and a couple of you responded.
Denise, I am thankful for so many things, a house that has a gas fireplace and a wood burning stove to keep me warm (and those that come to visit) on these cold, cold days, my health which I’m extremely grateful for so I can do the things I do at my age, I’m slower but have no problems being ambulatory and I can still drive. I don’t go as far as I once did, but I certainly have no problems driving. I have a healthy family who I’m able to see and a son who comes for breakfast every morning, and does my chicken chores in the mornings for me, and he checks on me each and every day just to make sure I’m okay and if I need anything done. I am so blessed. And I have wonderful friends.Love,Delores
