Being Thankful

I so enjoy a day set aside to reflect on all the things that I have to be grateful for.
Here are just a few ...

I have the best family. We have out ins and outs, ups and downs, good times and bad, but when push comes to shove, we are always there for each other. I am very lucky (and I know some people wouldn't agree) to have my immediate family just a few miles away.

I am lucky that our son likes to come home and hang out with us on holidays. I am also very lucky to have such a wonderful husband. No picture, but if I did, it would be of him making yummy scrambled eggs and ham for breakfast this morning. We do a well- choreographed dance in our small kitchen every Thanksgiving morning. I'm making pies while he makes breakfast. We somehow managed not to run into each other too many times.

Just had to throw in a picture of my cranapple pie. It's just out of the oven and making the house smell fabulous! Can't wait for dessert later today.

So, from me to you, Happy Thanksgiving and don't forget to count your blessings!

Cranapple pie I have never heard of that before, sounds really good. Happy Thanksgiving to you. Don't you just love it when you both can work in the kitchen side by side? Florence

Yes, it is a testiment to you and your husband that your son wants to come home and hang with you..that is wonderful.
OH my goodness, I have not had anything crabapple since I was young, our neighbors use to have a crabapple tree and she would make crabapple jelly and make swedish pancakes..and we would put some on them, roll them up and eat them...Such delightful memories.
