Today is Thanksgiving day here in the United States, a time to reflect on our blessings. I am thankful for my family, friends and for the wonderful people that read my blog. I am thankful that I live here in beautiful rural Nebraska with it’s changing seasons and friendly people. I am thankful for learning how to quilt in 1981 as quilting has been a very fulfilling art form for me and full of future possibilities. I am thankful for my computer and the internet as it has opened the world to me in ways I never would have guessed when we purchased our first computer many, many years ago. Those are just a few of the things I am thankful for and I could make lists and lists of things I am thankful for as could everyone reading this but will stop here.
Tomorrow at dinner at my brothers home I will probably eat too much, laugh a lot and get that warm fuzzy feeling all over from time spent with those I love. Just the best things to have for Thanksgiving day.Speaking of eating too much, my part of the dinner is to bring the dessert, and what says Thanksgiving dessert more than pumpkin pie. I made two this afternoon and have purchased some whipping cream that will get beat up into a sweet, white topping for each slice. Can’t wait!
Happy, Happy Thanksgiving from my house to yours!
