Thanksgiving will be here soon. Fast approaching, the shopping not really done.
We are going to our son’s house, so it is not the big ‘drag out the china’ day for us and that is OK.
We welcome the invitation.
November is also our anniversary month.
This year it was our 50th.
Hard to believe that we have been living in the same house for that long.
Well not same physical house, but ‘us’ together.
We were young. We grew up together.
Had our children, watched them grow up into wonderful adults with children of their own. We have six amazing grand children. Life is good.
We have really lived through the richer, poorer, in sickness and in health, and it has been a learning process for both of us.
He out did himself this year by purchasing 50 Yellow roses.
LONG stem in one bouquet. The vase was huge.
I was surprised and not sure what to think. The bouquet was massive in size.
We went to the beach for a few days with our trailer and had wonderful meals out.
We planned it simple and cozy.
I think it matters most when we do things that are comfortable and not overly stressful.
Next week is Thanksgiving and then we head into the Christmas season.
I can decorate and set up lights and enjoy the season with a holiday movie or two.
It is a special time of year.
I also have a birthday. I thank God I made it this far to enjoy it.
We give thanks for all things small and large.
For family and for memories.
For friends who are near and dear to us.
We give thanks for a church that we can go to in freedom and without worry.
We give thanks that our Pastor is a man of integrity and knowledge.
Thanksgiving will be here soon, and we give thanks with our whole heart.
Our wedding day so many years ago.
