Thanksgiving in the USA

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Waking up a little later than usual (over the jet lag!) to a sunny, breezy, cool south Florida day...

Reading posts on Facebook from friends around the country and the world...

Watching the Macy's Day Parade and smiling to think of how my German friends would react to this very American tradition...

Baking mini-muffins in my Mom's kitchen...

Talking with the neighbors about our outdoor Christmas decorating plans for the weekend...

Getting ready to drive three hours with family members who I seldom see and some little second cousins who I've never met...

Looking for a good version of this song by Siegfried Ochs (attribued to Haendel) and coming across a lovely dance with young ballerinas being guided by their "father" dancers: www.youtube.com/watch?v=

So much to be thankful for...enjoy your day!

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving with new and old loved ones! You have lots of wonderful memories that will make you stronger in both faith and love as you remember loved ones who are now in heaven or far, far away. For me, it will be a day of hot and spice food with my honey at a local Chinese Buffet, then off to re-supply our prayer shawl yarns on the super-dooper late Thursday and Black Friday sales at nearby craft stores. To God be the Glory on this day and every day! Hug, hug -- Evelyn
