Tonight I’m looking at my Thanksgiving table and anticipating tomorrow when we will gather together and enjoy a wonderful meal and each other’s company. This year will be a little different.
We’ve already had our “big” Thanksgiving family gathering in Jasper – this past Saturday. Tomorrow, it will be me, Eddie and two of our children. We’ll add my brother and sister-in-law too. Hopefully a few of the nephews will be able to join us at some point. It will be a small gathering, but it will be family and I’m so thankful we have one another.
My “married” daughter – Anna Marie – and her new hubby, Ryan, will join us for a Thanksgiving breakfast tomorrow morning, which is something new to us. We’ll be having French toast! So maybe this will be a new tradition? I don’t know but whatever the case, I’m just thankful they are able to spend a little time with us tomorrow.
So tonight, I’m going over my menu for tomorrow and getting as much done ahead of time as I can. I’ll be making a turkey without my mother this year. My mother is enjoying the holiday with my sister Laurie in Chicago this year. The eggs are boiling as I write this – so we’ll make some deviled eggs tonight. We’ll also make the stuffing tonight too – sorry, but when you put it in the bird, it’s stuffing to me! (I know…I know…in the south it’s called dressing…)
In the end, we will be together as a family – whoever can be here – and we’ll enjoy the time together. We’ll add people to the table along with the food and it will be wonderful.
I hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow! Enjoy your time together…and blessing to all.
