Let us all give thanks!

Most of today was spent during a few little errands and also cooking in the kitchen while listening to Christmas songs on the radio. Oh I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but you have to understand that I am one of the people who listens to Christmas music all year long. I love the spirit of Christmas and truly wish that we could celebrate it all year long.
I have been so teary eyed lately, why? Maybe because Thanksgiving and Christmas time was always a happy time in our home, it was usually a safer time for me as a child because there were so many people around me... I was more protected, that was a blessing in disguise Maybe it's because I miss my kids so bad, having some of them far away from me and not coming home for Thanksgiving, is tough on a Mother's heart. Maybe it's because I am missing my Mom, my Grandma Johnny and my Aunt Ina while cooking today. Some of the best times were in the kitchen with them. They loved to cook, I have never been quite the cooks that they were. Yes, those were good times, happy times and safe times. But cooking all day in my kitchen alone, was just tough and for some reason I can't stop the tears from coming so freely. I know that I am very blessed and for that I am grateful. I am grateful for each one of you in my life and in the life of my family, thank you for everything!
Happy Thanksgiving! Good night dear friends, hope you enjoy this video!
