I Love Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving has to be one of my top 3 Holidays for sure. I love everything about it. I actually even LOVE the hours of cooking part of Thanksgiving. (Though, not so much the cleaning it all up bit.) I like spending hours in the kitchen with other women that I love and respect. Even if we're only talking about how to make the best mashed potatoes and when we know the turkey will be done.

I like making food that other people enjoy. I like that my rolls have become my signature piece. I really love the eating part! (Even this year when I'm suffering from morning sickness! I've actually been looking forward to the meal all week!) But I just mostly love the whole day (or week) when we can be with family and enjoy one another's company and make memories.

I love the whole idea of Thanksgiving. I love that it's a time of reflection on the joy in our lives and the many, many blessings the Lord has given us. Especially this year. I just feel so blessed and really, truly happy.

I have to agree, but Thanksgiving might be my favorite.

Oh my sweet, sweet Becky. One of the blessings in my life for which I am most deeply thankful is YOU! I love your kindness to me and to everyone around you, your positive outlook, and your willingness to share your talents. (And ground beef!)

You are truly beautiful, inside and out.

Thank you for sharing your feelings about Thanksgiving.

Love, Mama

I agree with you. Thanksgiving is truly one of the best holidays. Family is the best. Aren't we so blessed to get along with our family and love being with them. Thank you for letting me share a little of you and your life through your blog. It is good to get to know you better.
