Yesterday was Thanksgiving in the U.S. Abraham Lincoln, my favorite president, gave a speech where he set a side this day, as a national holiday. His speech stated we should give thanks to our creator. The speech was printed in our local paper – he sure had a way with words! '
I try to be thankful everyday. Jesus has blessed me and my family so much. In good times and bad, I always try to find something to be thankful for.
Yesterday, we had Al’s family over for lunch. His family is small, compared to mine. We made a new tradition, last year, that I do Thanksgiving, Jean, my sister-in-law, Christmas and Marlene, my mother-in-law, Easter. So, this was our 2nd Thanksgiving here.
We, enjoyed the day, eating and watching the Packer Game. Later in the evening, we went to my mom’s house, with some left-overs and to visit. My great-niece made the whole meal at my mom’s. She is only 14 and did an awesome job (she wanted to do this). My mom has made many a turkey, however, she is not physically able to cook any more. This really makes her depressed – so pray for her, please. So, Aayliah, “helped” grandma cook…bless her heart!
Here are a few pictures of my house decorated for Thanksgiving.
I’ve been collecting these little candles for years – they are Tavern Candles. I have a lot for Christmas.
I set the table with a combination of antique and vintage plates. Justine made the bread cornacopia, we added mini fruits. It turned out so cute!
I hope you enjoyed your day. Remember to find things to be thankful for everyday – Blessed in Wisconsin.
