Gentle Friends, although this year we celebrate Thanksgiving not as we would want ... but we can still be thankful for what we do have and who we have around. I found these two old snaps on the internet and they really spoke to me of Thnaksginvings past...
... although I didn't grow up with a wood-burning stove I did grow up with my mom in the kitchen all day dealing with Dinner that was the highlight of the afternoon... always served around 2:30 pm. That gave everyone time to relax and enjoy the meal, and time to clean up and sit a relax into the early evening. Then when we kiddos came sniffing around for something to eat around 6 or 6:30...I can still hear my mom say "there are leftovers in the fridge, make a sandwich!" She had done the big job and so we did eventually go to the fridge and make ourselves a sandwich or two!!
This picture reminds me of me... and sitting not listening but anticipating the deliciousness that is the all mighty turkey!! Being a little kid around the Holidays was always fun and it always started with going out for Trick-or-Treating and then Thanksgiving was the midpoint of Fall with the big slide to Christmas!!
That's about it for today wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!
