Empty tables; all ready for our guests.
Didn't the garage clean up well?
A couple of space heaters kept our garage at a perfect temperature for the 16 people who
shared a wonderful meal. The buffet line was set up on workbenches! My father and mother led the way.
Young and old shared the tables. Conversation and laughter abounded.
In addition to pies my sister brought from Bakers Square (Chicago area). Paula Deen baked a birthday cake for my father who will be 84 on Sunday! (Paula sells her cakes at our local WalMart.) Of course there was turkey, ham, my mother's warm & sweet mustard, dressing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, tossed salad, 3 layered jello salad, and dinner rolls.
|"With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation." Psalm 91:16|
After desserts, tables were cleared and we played several card games, rhythm, charades, and a special thanksgiving game where all the turkeys gobbled when they found candy corn hidden around the room.
I hope YOUR Thanksgivings Day was as special as ours. Except that two of our children and their families were unable to join us, it was a near-perfect day.
Thanks to many of you who expressed your concerns and assured me of your prayers.
I will sleep well tonight.
It's a wonderful life.
