Giving Thanks

Here in Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving on the the second Monday of  October.  Like everywhere else, it is a day of feasting with friends and family and of giving thanks.

We will be having dinner at our son and daughter-in-law's new house.  We will have the traditional meal of Turkey and all the trimmings.  My contribution to the meal will be Cranberry Salad, Apple Pie, homemade Dinner Rolls, Cornbread dressing and the Turkey. 

I am so very thankful for our family, our friends, our church family and God's many blessings upon our lives. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian blogger friends.  I pray that you are also thankful for the blessings that you have experienced in the past year.

Hi Cindy,

I wish we had Thanksgiving inEngland. It's a tradition I really admire. I am thankful,ortrytoremember to be, but it would be lovely to have that one day devotedto thankfulness and enjoying beingwith family andfriends. Itmust be a bit like Christmas, I imagine.

You're so right about sewing being a matter of practice. Sometimes people imply that even sewing ona button is a special skill but I truly think that the more you do it the better you get.

Anyway, sorry for the essay!

P.S. That would be frustrating about your blog link not showing up in your profile, but I just noticed that your blog link is under your contacts section of your profile... so that's good. :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! I love Thanksgiving dinner. Yours will be awesome as it sounds like our family's traditional turkey dinner fare. Enjoy being with your kids. This is the first one I have not spent with any of mine. But I am thankful I have three wonderful children! God is good!
