Thanksgiving___Tennessee style

We have a lot to be thankful for today. Our four children and their families are doing fine. Everyone is healthy and employed . . .which is something to be thankful for in this economy. We have our health and are enjoying our new adventure.

We have attended the same church here in Maryville, TN for the last two Sundays. Last week the pastor’s wife invited us to their home for Thanksgiving. We were pleasantly surprised and had no other plans so we accepted.

Mary made a salad and cupcakes to take to the afternoon traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings. We had a chance to fellowship with some great people and found out that we knew some of the same folks. It was interesting to get a sense of life in Tennessee.

Football, food and fellowship. . .we had a great day. We got a phone call from our son in Portland, Oregon and a short FaceTime session with our daughter and the cutest 1 year old boy in the world. We had a nice sunny, 60 degree day and enjoyed the freedom that living in America provides.

So just to say we are “Thankful” really doesn’t cover it properly. God has been very good to us. Special thanks to Doug and Kay for their sweet Christian hospitality.

The meal we had was way better than this one looks
