Thanksgiving, a popular holiday, when families come together
and acknowledge our blessings and gifts. I am my happiest
when my children are here, around my table sharing.
Today was no exception, we were grateful for family,
health and espectially thankful for those who serve to
protect our families, our holidays.
My children are not perfect, but pretty near. They have
made good choices and best of all they are friends to each
other. The Patton kids jump to the defense of a sibling
when needed. Again today was no exception as several
drove to Nashville to see Aubrey who is recovering from
surgery at St. Thomas. We could not help but remember
that Betty was always the first to jump when one was sick
or needed special attention.
Today I am thankful for my husband, a New Year's Eve
date in 1943 that turned into a sixty three year love affair.
I am thankful for my parents and for his parents who taught
us lessons from the old school.
My sweetheart made me laugh every day in some way or
another and was always so faithful and true. A perfect
example of his parents upbringing.
Is there any way to list all the blessings we have recieved?
Today I say thanks for unknown blessings already on the way.
