Happy Thanksgiving 2010

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  A time to gather with family and friends.  This year is a little different as we are hosting Thanksgiving at our house on Wednesday evening for my family and friends and on Thursday lunch for Mick's family.


It is my time to accept the torch and take some of the hard work and stress off my Mother.  She has hosted all of our family functions for years and basically did all of the cooking as well.  While it was nice to show up and eat a fabulous meal, it will be no more for me.  Instead, Mother will be able to walk into my house and sit and enjoy the meal, "dressed to the nine's" and looking like the queen matriarch.


We are so excited to have our home blessed with the warmth and laughter this holiday brings.  Autumn smells, crisp air, fabulous food, shopping and football!


This year I am giving thanks first, my relationship with the Lord, second is my precious family, third my career and the ability to make a positive difference in the lives of others almost on a daily basis. 


May you all have a Happy Thanks-Giving and Count Your Blessings!
