I have to admit, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. When I was a kid, I loved the chill in the air, the smell of turkey roasting in the kitchen, the excitement as the family headed out to watch the high school football game.
As I got older, football was replaced by watching the Macy’s parade. I loved setting the table for company and waiting for my dad to light a fire as we welcomed guests to our home.
Now, I live in Florida, so the fireplace rarely gets used in November. But the spirit still lives in my home.
I do the cooking now and my mom sets the table. We still watch the parade and definitely enjoy time with the family. And love the leftovers!
In the spirit of the season, please remember to give thanks for all the good things in your life. And as was mentioned in the post by Rula and Catherine, please donate to a food bank or homeless shelter. That is truly a sign of thanks.
I’ll be giving away a copy of Magnolia Bride in preparation for my December release, Honeysuckle Bride, the third book in The Business of Wedding series. The winner will be announced in the comment section tomorrow.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
