I'll be celebraing Thanksgiving with my dear good friend and Cardiologist Jeff Schoondyke and his family. They have included me, for some unfathomable reason, into their family in a most intimate way.
I am so lucky it is beyond belief. I have my own family that provides unreserved love and now I have a second family that does the same. How could anyone be more blessed? Tears of thankfulness roll down my cheeks for reasons I cannot fathom. All I can say is God has Blessed me beyond measure.
I pray for all of you that you can experience the happiness and thankfulness that I'll experience this Thanksgiving.
And wait till you hear about New Year's Eve!

We all go over to my Mom's home (here in Texas) to chow down. Usually a group of both family AND friends. Mom makes turkey and dressing. I make all the sides and a dessert. I also do dishes which usually....No one wants to do!!
This year will be different. Dad and I will be alone. The OH and daughter will be with his family. My brother and his wife will will take my mom out the day before. She'll be able to go to a sister's the day of. My brother and SIL will bring us leftovers...and I will cook for my niece and her hubby two days later.
I host it every year, we have around 17 family members come. Just bought a bird yesterday!
Need some cruise help?
