In some years past we have hosted Thanksgiving for Mr.'s family
Using my Grandmothers Johnson Brothers China, decorating the dining room.
This year we are doing something different.
I can never get my brother to come over with my husbands family.
Since it is just my brother and I, I always want to see him.
So we are going to Maggiano's in St Louis, you can check out the Thanksgiving menu.
Then later to my SIL's who hosts the opposite years from me.
We have a lot to be Thankful for this year.
My husbands business is doing much better, I actually can sleep at night without lying awake at night.
We are both healthy and happy. So are my family members.
I am thinking of those who have challenges, my friend who was just diagnosed with Breast cancer, or my friend whose husband is the last stages of ALS.
So as you gather around the table with those you love, give Thanks.
I will be remember those who are gone.
Thanksgiving 1972 My Mom, Dad, brother, both Grandfathers and My Grandmother. I wish I could go back in a time machine (and take Mr with me)
I can remember Mom cooking and it getting so warm we would have to crack the windows.
I can see her China with the turkey on it in the picture.
This year will be different, but I am still Thankful.
