Happy Thanksgiving!

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. We are thankful for many things & even though my life hasn't been perfect, (is anyone's?) I can't complain.

I've always thought it was important to show gratitude in everyday life & NOT just on Holidays!  When someone opens a door for you, KINDLY say thank you. If a person pays for your meal, say thank you - you get the picture. Small things DO make an impact, whether we seem them that very moment or not. 

On that note, my amazing guy has prepared the Thanksgiving menu for this year - which I'm truly thankful for. I let him do his thing because trust me, he's got skills! 

For now, I'd like to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!  Here's a sneak peek into what we're having tomorrow - feel free to comment & also tell me what you'll be having as well! 


I'd love to read what you've planned for tomorrow. For now, I'm signing off, but may pop in during the weekend, if not, then Monday!

Family in town?? Just you & your hubby? kids? Going to a friends/families house? Having Turkey or not????






CHRIST TAKES THE BREAD, BLESSED IT, BROKE IT, AND GAVE IT UNTO THE DISCIPLES. HE THEN TOOK THE CUP AND GAVE THANKS, AND GAVE IT TO THE DISCIPLES. AFTER THE SUPPER, THEY SUNG A HYMN AND DEPARTED TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES. Matthew 26: 26-29

We're hosting both mine and my husband's family at our home--and it's my first year making a turkey! Fingers crossed it turns out tomorrow... or we'll be calling for pizza!

Sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving meal!! I agree with you it's important to show our gratitude year around not just on Holidays. Life is far from perfect but thankfully He will perfect whatever concerns us. We'll be spending the day with family and I'll be doing some baking with the Little Miss :)

Have a blessed and oh so happy Thanksgiving!!

I totally agree! It's so important to be kind and thankful all year long.

Your menu looks amazing. We're going very traditional here: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce (homemade and the stuff from the can), asparagus with hollandaise, a few other sides and then apple pie, pumpkin pie and a brownie torte for dessert. Yum!!

Happy Thanksgiving!
