What difference a year can make....

This year, it was me and Jo doing the cooking. Jo and I aren't exactly "Martha Stewarts" but we rose to the occasion. We knew we could manage most of the things, but we were a little worried about a few...the turkey, the dressing and my Achilles heel?? The gravy!!! But our inner "Paula Deen's" arose and we killed it!!! For real, it was all delicious.

Shout out to my husband...he made the turkey. I am not a huge turkey fan. O-M-G, it was the best turkey I have ever eaten. Not just saying that because he's my man, for real it was excellent. Way to go babe!!!

There was lots of food to be had, naps to be taken, kids playing up a storm, football on the t.v., and even a Christmas movie or two, and more food to be had. We have so much to be thankful for. Than the Lord for family.

"Be thankful that you don't have already have everything you desire. If you did, what would there to be to look forward to?"

"Be thankful when you don't know something, for it gives you the opportunity to learn"

"Be thankful for difficult times. During those times you grow"

"Be thankful for each new challenge, because it will build your strength and character"

"Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you opportunities for improvement"

"Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons."

"Be thanful when you're tired and weary because it means you've made a difference"

"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; His love endures forever"
