Three or More Tuesday

Photobucket
Planning for thanksgiving has always been a delight in our family. For most of the years of Amanda's childhood and teen years we were planning and enjoying thanksgiving at the beach where we met with my parents and cousins to celebrate together. Those memories at the beach are priceless. Although I dont have digital photos to show, I can share this which I painted from a photo of our time Thanksgiving week in the early years. How fun it was to plan the meal assigning each family an elemen t of the dinner and combining it all to create a sumptuous feast.

Then when Amanda and Joshua married we were thrilled to visit in their wonderful home for Thanksgiving the last several years.... again each family brought their offering to assemble a delectable celebration and commemoration of Thanksgiving.

This year I will be scaling way back.... we'll celebrate just the four of us, Lynn and my parents. The kids just live to far away.... change has settled in at our house.

But we have so much for which to be thankful and we will express it joyfully. One thing we will reminisce about our opportunity to have a pre-celebration last month when we all got together for dinner at Cracker Barrell.

We will also thank the Lord for His many blessings on our family this year... our health, our protection, His many provisions! It has been a wonderful year and this year's Thanksgiving will be very special for we will be all together in our hearts, minds and spirit!!!!!

  3. Thanksgiving is such a warm and splendid family occasion. We were to have all met at my sister's home in Maryland, but that has to be cancelled. So those of us in Mass. will be joining together as we have the past several years.
