Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It has not suffered the commercialism that Christmas has. The Thanksgiving Day that stands out in my memory was in '95. I'd just gotten out of the hospital and my husband bought the cooked dinner from our local grocery store. My parents were there that day. It had been a awful couple of months, but I was fine and my family was with me. I had much to be thankful for.
These days, my father is no longer with us, but both of my children are now married and as we gather around the table, I am grateful to the Lord for his blessings and grace. I feel a connection with those first Pilgrims, thanking the Lord above for his bounty and depending on Him for guidance.
What blessings has the Lord poured into your life?
