Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I cannot pass this Thanksgiving up, without remembering a very special one I celebrated with my Sister C two years ago. After Mom's heart attack and she was flown to B'ham, we took turns staying with her. Sister C and I were there on Thanksgiving. After a day at the hospital with Mom, we settled into our hotel room for the night with room service. Complete with double-decker gourmet hamburgers, kicking cookies and a flower;) It couldn't have been any better.....well, except of course Mom at home and we were all around the table eating her scrumptious spread. But, that wasn't God's plan and he more than blessed us by sparing Mom, making us even more thankful!

My guys have abandoned me this Thanksgiving for a hunting trip. Go figure:) Anyways, after chasing a very long rabbit, to get to my point...which is.....I plan on having Thanksgiving with Mawmaw at her Assisted Living home. I'm looking forward to it!

After years of the routine family get together's, I've realized that while that is all wonderful and I miss it, things change. Whether we are having room service or a family dinner around the table, God blesses!

I'm thankful for God's perfect plan of salvation, and for saving me so many years ago. I'm looking for that Glad Reunion Day! He has blessed me with a wonderful husband, children, family and friends. I have a roof over my head, food on the table, and shoes on my feet. What more do I need? Not one thing.

I want to wish each and everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

A beautiful post and a great point! Things do change, and we still must be thankful for our blessings and continue to serve Him.

I hope you and your Maw Maw have a great Thanksgiving!
