Thanksgiving Reflections

"For the Lord is good, and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations." Psalm 100:5


Every time we "girls" put a Thanksgiving dinner on the table it takes me back to being in my 20's again. I never would have believed back then that we could pull it off without Mom. One year when my sister's kids were little, and long before I was married, we had a slumber party at Mom's the night before Thanksgiving and went through the whole meal preparation together. That was a truly inspired idea! Who could have known we'd lose her LONG before we thought it was time to be asking for last minute instructions?

Thanksgiving was at our house this year, so I cooked the turkey. It was a beauty, I must say. We had the whole spread covered between my sister, my sister-in-law and me. Mom would have been proud. That always makes me smile.

I'm sorry to hear you lost your Mom so early. It's good to remember to pass on your traditions when you get the chance. When we got married, I bought this book at Archivers that has a few pages to commemorate Christmas each year - you write where you went, what you did, who you visited, special gifts and a place for a photo. I love it and we enjoy reading it each Christmas. We also tuck in our Christmas letter each year and it serves as a wonderful way to gather our Christmas traditions.
