It is almost life size, isn't it? Happy Thanksgiving!
Liesl and myself will be linking up again this year to spread some gratitude cheer.
I mentioned in my last post that Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and give thanks. A time to pause and think about all the blessings that came our way. A time to give thanks for all we are given. Last year I did a little thankful tree, not sure how I completely forgot to make one of those this year - whoops! Moving on.
This year, I reflected.
Thankful Hearts are the Happiest Hearts:
Unlike last year, I won't be surprising my family with a little visit home. Instead I will be spending the holiday watching friends learn how to cook a turducken wrapped in quilted bacon, while carefully placing my store bought pies on pretty plates - so they will never know my little un-homemade secret. I am saving them from a disaster. Really.
I won't be rubbing elbows with my many cousin's this year, fighting over who get's to hold the baby next, stealing 3 extra slices of mom'mom's famous pies, or sharing stories about love, lose, hopes, dreams, and adventure. But I do know, no matter where I am in the world we all are giving thanks together for another wonderful year. Three cheers for that! Hip Hip...
Now please excuse me as I finish this lovely apple pie.
Happy Thanksgiving, Friends!
