How wonderful it was on Thursday to celebrate another day of thanks to God for all the wonderful blessings he has bestowed on me and my family! We thank God every day, actually, but Thanksgiving is a time to especially remember all that God has provided. Our holiday was a happy day of love, laughter, and peace.
The day was especially nice as we spent it at home with my darling husband's first cousin and her husband. They traveled all the way from Michigan to visit and have a traditional, Southern Thanksgiving meal. We feasted on turkey, giblet gravy, ham, cornbread dressing (a.k.a. stuffing), green beans, potato salad, cranberry conserve, apple pie, pumpkin pie, and other assorted sides. Whew! A blessing in every bite!
Yesterday, we traveled around eastern North Carolina seeing the sites. Although we live in the region, we still saw several new places and had a wonderful time.
While our Thanksgiving meal was magnificent, there was nothing new in the fact that too much of anything is finally enough! Last night we had a different meal and some wonderful ice cream in a nearby town. Emily discovered the lemon flavor on their last trip to visit, and we couldn't wait to try it again, so this was a much-anticipated treat.

As we move from the Thanksgiving season to Christmas, may we all be ever mindful of the many blessings we have been given from God - and then each do our part to bring joy to others, as well.
Thanks for stopping by, and please stay tuned for a new card before the day is out! Peace.
