At the Friday Forum these questions are offered up this week.

  • 1. What do plan to do for Thanksgiving? (Are you cooking? Staying at home?Going to visit family?)
  • 2. What are some Thanksgiving traditions that you have?
  • 3. What is your favorite thing about Thanksgiving?
  • 4. Do plan to start Christmas shopping after Thanksgiving or are you alreadyfinished?
  • 5. Think about what you are blessed with and list them if you'd like.

I'd especially like to read your answers to #5.

Joanie... what wonderful questions! I may spend a whole post on them later today. One the list would be that I am especially thankful for the privilege of reading your Blog and Carol's each morning. And I am thankful for both od you in having enough confidence in me to help me get started in computering as well as blogging.

1. Having our mothers, Jared and Lim, Lim's brother and his family and her sister, and Warren's sister and some friends all at my house for a meal.
2. Mama Edge's dressing recipe!
4. I shop online too and have about 80% done.
5. I am thankful for having a loving family and to have our family larger this year with the addition of a daughter-in-law and her family. God is so good!

I put a comment on this yesterday and it's not here? Maybe I hit the wrong button? probably.....

1. Visit with Mother and at Mother's with family;

2. Going to Mothers, having so many people in the house you can't stir them with a stick, laughing a lot, eating too much and having that I-ate-too-much-turkey-sleepiness all afternoon;

3. Visiting with family members, it's a day when no one expects you to be working (at work) and you really don't have anything else you HAVE to do;

4. Okay, this is going to be sentimental (just a warning). I was just thinking about this yesterday, not necessarily in connection with Thanksgiving.

Because of what I do for a living and because of a chain of events recently, I have been acutely aware of how fortunate I am to have been raised by parents that loved me unconditionally.

Whatever their problems might have been and understanding they are only human and weren't perfect, there was never a day in my life I didn't know that my parents loved me.

I took that for granted as a child, as an adult I have come to understand how rare that is.

The blessings in my life can pretty much be traced back to that solid and secure foundation.

I am very thankful for my parents.

(told you it was going to be sentimental! :) )
