Happy Thanksgiving Day to All.

I am a thankful kind of person. Thank you, Dear Ones,  for enriching my life. I am blessed to have you in a big way or in any small way.

Today I am thankful for the early morning phone call from Sarah and Savannah. Savannah said so loud and clear, "Happy Thanksgiving, Nannie."   Mid day a call call came from Lynn.  The girls checked in. The guys are either here or on their way.

We have a feast and flowers from the garden on our table.
