Thanksgiving Day! What are you thankful for?

Thanksgiving has always been a day of family and friends for me. This year will be harder than usual as we won’t be with our daughter and son-in-law, their professions require them to work with the less fortunate in their communities. We won’t be traveling to visit family out-of-town and we will miss them! Instead it will be small and probably include my husband’s sister and her friend. This year is also the first year we have a vegan daughter! No Tofurkey though! We will make a small Turkey and enjoy it! As much as our daughter Kendra loves to cook, we will probably be blessed with some delicious vegan dish to add to the table. I hope your Thanksgiving is blessed  with family and friends and some turkey too!

The History of Thanksgiving

Ever wonder what the pilgrims and their Native American guests really ate at the first feast? The truth may surprise you. Contrary to popular belief, they didn’t sit down to a meal featuring turkey, corn, cranberries, and pumpkin pie (in fact, they didn’t even have forks!).

Travel back to Plymouth and discover some of the humble origins of Thanksgiving traditions we celebrate today and what the original celebration was actually like!

These links are from The History Channel an excellent source of information regarding our heritage.

  1. I’m thankful for the men and women who are serving in our armed services all over the world. Thank you brave men and women who risk so much for us all. I am reminded that we don’t need to build walls to keep people inside our great country. God bless the men and women that are protecting and maintaining our freedom.
