Not all of our kids were able to come for Thanksgiving. Our Houston kids could not make it this year for Thanksgiving, but our Daughter and her boy fried made it from Kansas. She wont be able to come for Christmas so we celebrated it with her the day after Thanksgiving. It is always so much fun to pass out presents when our grandkids or here to do it with us.
Since we were only to exchange gifts with my daughter and Brian and them with us and the boys. My grandkids were so excited though they had gotten me a present even though they were not supposed to. I opened it and it was a US Navy Christmas ornament. I let them hang it on the tree. They were so excited and found the perfect place to hang it
Yesterday was Thanksgiving day here in America. I honestly think that people here in the good old USA have forgotten what Thanksgiving is about. With all the hype about black Friday and shopping. Places used to be closed so they could be home with their family’s. Now days it’s all about getting the dollar.
This year my kids that live out-of-town could not make it here for Thanksgiving. My one son who lives here is a Fireman and was supposed to have worked but he had to call in sick. It rained all day yesterday, so we pretty much stayed indoors all day. My son did call and asked if I could take the part of Thanksgiving dinner which he was supposed to take to work in for him. I told him of course we would, and that it would give me a chance to tell his work buddy’s at the fire station a big thank you for what they do for the people in Amarillo to keep us safe.
We had a niece in town visiting their daughter for Thanksgiving. She had contacted me and said they would love to see us. We do not get to see them all that often so we jumped at the chance. It was so good to see her and her sweet family. The rain was going to turn to freezing rain after dark and they had decided to drive back home to Oklahoma before it started freezing for this system is supposed to last through part of the weekend.
So I am thankful for my family, my home, my country, for all the first responders, our military personnel at home and abroad helping keep us safe. And most of all my God and savior for all he has done for me and my family.
