Happy Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving was a little sad for me. My mom died in February and this is the first one without her.
Back when she lived at home, we always ate Thanksgiving Lunch with Jilda's folks, and then went down afterwards to decorate mother's house for Christmas.
She was into Christmas decorations. She had a monster tree, and all kinds of stuff for her yard. The whole family including the grandkids and great grandkids would come join in.
It became one of those traditions.
Mama made excellent desserts and a Christmas punch. After the decorating was done, we'd sit around stuffing our faces with apple pie, red velvet cake, sugar cookies, and Jilda's favorite, divinity.
It was all she could do to keep from stuffing her purse with pounds of the delicate candy.
My sister Mary Lois invited us for lunch, and our nephew Haven invited us for dinner, so we've spent the day with the ones we love.
I hope you all have had a wonderful day.


  1. Holidays without our loved ones are hard...we are trying to start new traditions. Be blessed.

  2. I'm glad you were able to enjoy the day with other family members. You have some lovely traditions and memories that your mother enriched you with. I'm always thankful for things like that that can be recorded, and given to others to enrich their traditions and lives. And so it goes.
