A quick hello and a warm, heartfelt Thanksgiving blessing to you my sweet friends. I'm not cooking this year, just a batch of double fudge brownies and garlic green beans. YUMMIE! The brownies are in the oven, I lit a cozy fire and there is a generous dose of Christmas music on the radio. A no -no usually before Christmas but I've indulged early. I do love to listen to the oldies, like Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett and Andy William's classics. I remember last year my Dad made the trip from Canada to be with us on Thanksgiving. He loved this holiday most of all as he said, there is no pressure like the busyness Christmas can bring. Just a nice quiet, relaxing day enjoying a meal with your family. I'll be going to my sister Susie's house this year who has graciously opened her home to 15 of us. The table will be set beautifully as Susie always does, with a bountiful of our favorite comfort foods we love. We thought we would set a place at the table in memory of my dear mom and dad. This year will not be the same without them, there is an emptiness in my heart that can not be filled. I am truly thankful for the gift of being their daughter and knowing the most extraordinary human-beings on earth. I love and miss you mom and dad, so very much...
To you my sweet friends, you are a true blessing in my life. And, I am ever so grateful for your kindness and friendship to me this year.
I wish each and everyone of you the Happiest of Thanksgivings!!!
Love & Friendship,
