Thanksgiving Joy

The table was full, each chair filled with a friend or loved one. We missed having Casi dine with us but he had to work. He came later and enjoyed a plate of food after work. We missed having Melissa and James here, but talked to them on the phone just before we ate.
There was turkey, maple butternut squash, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, stuffing, New England corn pudding, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, and angle biscuits, warm from the oven. Pies for dessert, piled high with fresh whipped cream. It didn't seem to matter that it was cold outside, the house was toasty warm from having the oven going all morning long. After we ate, the children played, babies got passed around with delight and we all sat back feeling very thankful for the bountiful meal and the many blessings in our lives. Melanie cleaned up the kitchen, washing all the dishes from the meal...I was so thankful for her help.
Life is good, and I feel very thankful for all the good in my life !
