Turkey, Stuffing and Pecan Pie

When I think of Thanksgiving, the first thing that comes to my mind is family, friends, food and Black Friday. With everyone going in different directions, it seems few and far between when we all get together. However- I am guaranteed that every Thanksgiving, I will be seated across the table from those I cherish the most. We will be eating anything and everything set before us and laughing along the way. It is the memories of waking up to Grandpa's "bear" at 6 am, the football games with cousins, slurping the chocolate pie (that didn't congeal) through a straw, making crescent rolls at Grandma's, dispersing the "Day after Thanksgiving" ads and napping on the couch after gaining at least 10 lbs laying every which-a-way like little puppies that I will never forget.

I thank the Lord for blessing me with an abundant family. He is generous indeed!
